High temperature reaction tests between high-Cr ODS ferritic steels and U-Zr metallic fuel

Otsuka, Satoshi   ; Kaito, Takeji ; Ukai, Shigeharu*; Inoue, Masaki ; Okuda, Takanari*; Kimura, Akihiko*

The Al addition to ODS ferritic steels considerably improves the compatibility between U-Zr fuel and the ODS steels. The threshold temperature for reaction layer formation is roughly 50K higher in the Al-containing ODS ferritic steels than in those same steels without Al addition. The activity calculation results obtained using general thermodynamic data indicate the possibility that stabilization of the intact alpha-Zr layer by Al addition is the main mechanism for the compatibility improvement by Al addition.
