Title: Demonstrate Benchtop Measurement of Recrystallization

Abstract

The Mechanical Property Microscope (MPM) was used to monitor grain restructuring (recrystallization) of a metallic fuel surrogate sample. The MPM is a laser ultrasonic instrument used to measure the elastic and anelastic response of a material. The MPM has been used previously to measure the elastic constants of UZr system both as a function of composition and temperature. In this study we extend the capability of the MPM to make measurements of the resonant response a small metallic fuel surrogate as function of temperature. The fuel surrogate consists of a highly textured copper sample. By tracking specific resonant modes as a function of temperature we demonstrate that the MPM is well suited to measure grain restructuring in metallic fuel surrogates.
