Title: High Temperature Mechanical Properties of HFIR Irradiated FeCrAl Alloys

Abstract

Due to their excellent performance in high temperature oxidizing steam environments, Iron-Chromium-Aluminum (FeCrAl) alloys are a strong candidate material for Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF) cladding applications. A number of these alloys, GenI FeCrAl alloys with varying Cr (10-18 wt. %) and Al (3-5 wt. %) content, irradiated to 7dpa at 320°C in the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), were tested in tension at 500ºC, to add to previous data collected at room temperature and 250°C. A second group of GenII FeCrAl alloy controls, with 6 wt. %Al, and 10 to 13 wt. % Cr, were also tested in tension to use as baseline tensile data for ongoing irradiation experiments in HFIR.
