沸騰硝酸環境におけるジルコニウムの耐食性に及ぼす伝熱の影響を各硝酸濃度で調べた。伝熱面及び等温浸漬面における腐食減量と電気化学的分極曲線を測定した。その結果、ジルコニウムの腐食速度は等温浸漬面よりも伝熱面の方が大きくなることが明らかになった。その速度は硝酸濃度と溶液温度の上昇により大きくなった。沸騰伝熱面における硝酸の酸化力上昇は、伝熱面上での熱分解による亜硝酸濃度の低下と沸騰バブルによって分解生成物が溶液から排出されることにより引き起こされる。沸騰伝熱面における12mol/dm$$^{3}$$硝酸水溶液の酸化還元電位はジルコニウムの一次不働態皮膜の破壊電位に非常に近づいた。これは、核燃料再処理プロセスの沸騰伝熱面において応力腐食割れが生じることを示唆している。

The effects of heat-transfer on the corrosion of zirconium was examined in boiling nitric acid solutions with various concentrations. Corrosion mass losses and electrochemical polarization curves were measured on the heat-transfer and isothermal surfaces in the solutions. It was found that the corrosion rate of zirconium was higher on the heat-transfer surface than that on the isothermal surface. The rate increased with increasing nitric acid concentration and solution temperature. The increased oxidization potential on the heat-transfer surface is attributed to the reduction of nitrous acid concentration by the thermal decomposition on the surface and the removal of the decomposition product from solution by boiling bubbles. The redox potential of 12 mol/dm3 nitric acid on a boiling heat-transfer surface was very close to the breakdown potential of primary passivity of zirconium. This suggests the initiation of SCC on a boiling heat-transfer surface in a nuclear fuel reprocessing.
