Title: PROGRESS ON THE USE OF GAS-PRESSURE BONDING FOR FABRICATING LOW-COST CERAMIC, CERMET, AND DISPERSION FUELS

Abstract

Basic properties of several types and grades of commercial UO/sub 2/ have been determined. Compacting characteristics of these powders were evaluated with the objective of obtaining a minimum cold-pressed density of 70% of theoretical prior to gas-pressure bonding. Fused and special dense grades of UO/ sub 2/ powders were compacted to a density of 85% of theoretical by use of a 50- tsi compacting pressure. Cold-pressed compacts were simultaneously clad and densified to a maximum he UO/sub 2/ powders that were capable of being pressed to the hightest coldpressed density exhibited the least amount or densification during gus-pressure bonding. A small stainless essure bonded at 2100 F for 3 hr at 10,000 psi. Examination of this assembly indicates that it is feasible to prepare fuel ep operation by use of the gas-pressure-bonding process.
