Title: HIGH-TEMPERATURE IRRADIATION ON A ZIRCONIUM HYDRIDE-2 w/o URANIUM ALLOY

Abstract

Enriched ZrH/sub 1.65/ -2 wt.% uranium specimens were irradiated under 1 atm. of hydrogen at center-line temperatures between 900 to 1400 deg F to uranium burnups of between 13 and 25 at.%. Specially designed irradiation capsules were used to provide the conditions of temperature and hydrogen atmosphere which were required. Each capsule was instrumented with five thermocouples so that ample temperature data could be obtained during the irradiation. Almost negligible density changes were produced in the material by the irradiation. Changes in length and diameter were of a degree which could fall within experimental error in measurement. Metallographic examination showed no change in microstructure which could be attributed to the effect of irradiation. (auth)
