Title: Metallic Fuels Handbook, Part 1: Alloys Based on U-Zr, Pu-Zr, U-Pu, or U-Pu-Zr, Including Those with Minor Actinides (Np, Am, Cm), Rare-earth Elements (La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Gd), and Y; and Part 2: Elements and Alloys not Based on U-Zr, Pu-Zr, U-Pu, or U-Pu-Zr

Abstract

The Metallic Fuels Handbook summarizes currently available information about phases and phase diagrams, heat capacity, thermal expansion, and thermal conductivity of elements and alloys in the U-Pu-Zr-Np-Am-La-Ce-Pr-Nd system. Although many sections are reviews and updates of material in previous versions of the Handbook, this revision is the first to include alloys with four or more elements. In addition to presenting information about materials properties, the handbook attempts to provide information about how well each property is known and how much variation exists between measurements. Although it includes some results from models, its primary focus is experimental data. Because of its size, the Handbook has been split into two parts, which are presented as separate documents. This (the first) part contains introductory material and information about the U-Pu-Zr system (U-Zr, Pu-Zr, U-Pu, and U-Pu-Zr alloys, including those with minor actinides, rare-earth elements, and Y). The second part contains information about elements and the remaining alloys in the U-Np-Pu-Am-La-Ce-Pr-Nd-Zr system.
