Zr Alloy Manufacturing and Effects on In-reactor, DBA and Interim Dry Storage Performance


The overall objective of this Special Topic Report (STR) is to provide the knowledge of how the reactor environment (fast neutron flux, temperature, water chemistry, etc.) and the Zr-alloy microstructure, which is a function of material chemistry and manufacturing process, impacts fuel performance during normal operations, transients, design basis accidents and interim dry storage.
