The Effect of sea water component on the cladding oxidation at high temperature

Yamato, Masaaki; Fukuda, Takuji; Amaya, Masaki; Nagase, Fumihisa

After the Great East Japan Earthquake, the reactor and spent fuel pool in Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant was cooled by sea water. In order to evaluate the effect of sea component on the cladding oxidation at high temperature, isothermal oxidation tests in steam or Ar+O$$_{2}$$ were performed with zircaloy-2 cladding specimens whose surface was attached sea component. As a result, influence of sea component is not significant for the oxidation thickness, but oxidation atmosphere was influenced the adherence of the oxidation and metallic layer.
