To extend the fuel burnup of the light water reactor, an issue is to improve
corrosion resistance of the Zircaloy cladding tube. The annealing procedure in a
manufacturing process of the Zircaloy-4 cladding tube has been well known to
affect corrosion behavior significantly. This paper describes the effect of
annealing temperature on the corrosion behavior and the Zr02 microstructure of
the Zircaloy-4 (Zry-4) cladding tube. The corrosion resistance of the Zircaloy-4
cladding tube has ...

DEFINITION of the PROBLEM The phenomena of initiation and subcritical
propagation of cracks in structural materials due to the conjoint actions of stress,
material microstructure and environment have been recognized for many years
There have been well documented instances of environmentally-assisted
cracking in high-temperature water of austenitic stainless steels, nickel-base
alloys and low-alloy or carbon steels in various light water (nuclear) reactor (LWR
) components such ...

ABSTRACT: Irradiation-assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) is a significant
materials issue for the light water reactor (LWR) industry and may also pose a
problem for fusion power reactors that will use water as coolant. A new
metallurgical process is proposed that involves the radiation-induced release into
solution of minor impurity elements not usually thought to participate in IASCC.
MnS-type precipitates, which contain most of the sulfur in stainless steels, are
thought to be ...
