Title: STUDIES OF THE CORROSION OF ALUMINIUM AND ITS ALLOYS FOR NUCLEAR REACTOR. II. ALUMINIUM ALLOYS RESISTANT TO WATER AT HIGH TEMPERATURE UP TO 300 C

Abstract

For application of aluminum alloys to the power reactor, it would be desirable for them to have properties of high mechanical strength together with good corrosion resistance at reactor operating temperature. Preliminary work conducted to survey the effect of various alloying elements on corrosion resistance in high-purity water and on the mechanical strength of alloys at the temperature of 300 nif- C is reported. The alloying elements which proved to improve corrosion resistance of aluminium were iron, nickel, copper, silicon, palladium, and titanium, and which proved to increase strength at high temperature were copper, silicon, and magnesium. It was concluded from these results that the alloy C-18 (1.2 Fe-1.4 Cu-1.2 Ni-1.1 Mg-Al) was the best alloy tested. (auth)
