高燃焼度BWR燃料被覆管では、半径及び軸方向に平行な面に沿った水素化物の析出が増加する。半径方向水素化物はRIA時の燃料挙動に重要な役割を果たし、PCMI条件下では、被覆管の延性を低下させる可能性がある。PCMI条件下における高燃焼度燃料被覆管の破損挙動に及ぼす径方向水素化物の影響を調べるために、約200$$sim$$600ppmの水素を添加した未照射BWR被覆管のバースト試験を行った。約20$$sim$$30%の水素化物を半径方向と軸方向に平行な面に沿って再配向させた。室温及び373Kにおいて、軸方向の割れを伴う大きな破損開口が生じた。しかし、破裂圧力と残留周方向歪み量に対する径方向水素化物の影響は非常に小さかった。したがって、調べた水素濃度と径方向水素化物割合の範囲において、径方向水素化物のみによって、高燃焼度BWR燃料被覆管の延性が著しく低下することはないと考えられる。

Hydride precipitation along the radial-axial plane increases in high burn-up BWR fuel claddings. The radial hydrides may have an important role during fuel behavior in a RIA and may reduce ductility of the cladding under PCMI conditions. In order to promote a better understanding of the influence of the radial hydrides on cladding failure behavior under the PCMI conditions, tube burst tests were conducted for unirradiated BWR claddings charged with 200 to 650 ppm of hydrogen. About 20 to 30% of hydrides were re-oriented and precipitated along the radial-axial plane. The claddings exhibited large burst openings with an axial crack at room temperature and 373 K. However, the influence of the radial hydrides on both burst pressure and residual hoop strain was very small. It is accordingly expected that ductility of high burn-up BWR cladding is significantly reduced not only by precipitation of radial hydrides as far as hydrogen concentration and radial hydride fraction range in the present study.
