Abstract or Summary
  • A study of the oxidation of zircaloy in reactor environments has been undertaken with the goal of characterizing of the Thermal Gradient Test Facility (TGTF) at Teledyne Wah Chang, Albany. A set of oxidation models is presented from the literature, as well as an extensive database of published oxidation test results. The question of the acceleration of zircaloy oxidation by aqueous lithium hydroxide is examined, with static autoclave test results compared to published models and results. Theories of the possible concentration of lithium hydroxide in operating reactor systems are presented. Large increases in the oxidation rate are investigated, with the possible use of lithium hydroxide accelerated oxidation in a shortterm, in situ examination of the corrosion of a simulated fuel rod under heated conditions. Finally, a manual for the use of the database is presented, for the continuing existence of the database at OSU for future researchers.
