Title: QUANTITATIVE CORRELATION OF IRRADIATION GROWTH WITH PREFERRED ORIENTATION IN URANIUM

Abstract

A review is presented of the methods developed at the Savansah River Laboratory and elsewhere for quantitative correlation of irradiation growth with preferred orientation inuranium, with preferred orientation characterized by x- nay and dilatometric techniques. In an application of the methods, it is shown that a strongly oriented uranium plate, clud in aluminum, was much more stable in dimen- . sions than would be expected from the observed dimensional behavior of either unrestrained single crystals of uranium or aluruinum-clad polycrystalline rod. The greater stability of the plate is attributed to a relatively strong claiding and other restraing effects. (auth)
