Abstract

An instrument for the fully automatic measurement and recording of Young's modulus and the shear modulus and the damping capacity as a function of temperature and time is shown. The measurement of Young's modulus is produced by exciting specimens of various sizes in their natural frequency. The measurement of damping capacity occurs by free decay of the vibration or by the measurement of the half width of the resonance curve. Examples are given for measurements of the recovery after radiation damage and after plastic deformation and for the degree of graphitation. The detection of defects and density variations in graphite bars is proven. Furthermore, a method of investigation of the fastening of UO{sub 2} pellets in thin-walled austenitic tubes is explained, A special oven for the investigation of the elastic and inelastic behaviour of ''hot'' specimens at temperatures between 20 and 2000 Degree-Sign C is shown. The quality control of non-ferrous metals by means of eddy-current measurement of the electrical conductivity is discussed. An instrument is shown for the contactless measurement of the electrical conductivity of non-ferrous metals. The correlation between the electrical conductivity and the stress-strain behaviour of non-ferrous metals and alloys is explained. Special attention is paid to  More>>

The quality control of non-ferrous metals by means of eddy-current measurement of the electrical conductivity is discussed. An instrument is shown for the contactless measurement of the electrical conductivity of non-ferrous metals. The correlation between the electrical conductivity and the stress-strain behaviour of non-ferrous metals and alloys is explained. Special attention is paid to the measurement of small-size test pieces. A device for remote direct measurement in the ''hot'' zone of the reactor is shown. The dependence of the electrical conductivity upon the radiation dose is discussed. An instrument for the measurement of the permeability, the remanence and the coercive force as a function of the mechanical stress and the elastic and plastic strain and of the radiation dose is explained. Measurements of the variation of magnetic properties as a function of elastic stress and plastic deformation are shown. The effects of irradiation on the permeability and the coercive force are discussed. An instrument is shown for the quick measurement and direct reading of the permeability and stainless- steel components. The correlation between permeability and {Delta} ferrite content is explained. Measurements of the {Delta} ferrite percentage across welds in stainless-steel tubes and measurements of the {Delta} ferrite precipitations as a function of the plastic strain are discussed (hammer-forging of reactor fuel-elements).

Se explica la correlacion entre la conductividad electrica y las caracteristicas de esfuerzo-deformacion de metales y aleaciones no ferrosos. Se presta especial atencion a la determinacion de estas propiedades en muestras pequenas. Se describe un dispositivo para medicion directa a distancia en la zona radiactiva del reactor. Se examina la relacion existente entre conductividad electrica y la dosis de radiacion.
