Description/Abstract:
The transverse rupture strength of modified zirconium-10 w/o uranium hydride (H/Zr = 1.5 to 1.6, 0.4 to 0.5 w/o carbon) was determined at room temperature, 500° and 950°F. It was concluded that the room temperature strength of this fuel material was essentially unchanged by the addition of an average of 0.4 w/o carbon. A similar conclusion could not be made for the elevated temperature strengths, since carbon appeared to increase the strength at 500°F but reduce it at 950°F.
