First presented are keynote lectures, followed by papers on deformation, including magnesium, severe plastic deformation, accumulative roll bonding and high pressure torsion, modeling, orientation gradient, experimentation research, and creep and superplasticity; deformation and annealing, including cube texture and thermo-mechanical processing; techniques, microstructure, dislocations, x-ray/neutron diffraction, recent advances, and electron backscatter diffraction measurements; annealing, with discussion of grain coarsening, recrystallization, and recovery; and materials, such as corrosion oxidation, interfaces, electrical steel, steel, titanium and zircaloy, phase transformation, shape memory, nano-structure materials, microstructural engineering, and non-metallic materials.
In some zircaloy nuclear fuel cladding used in boiling-water reactors (BWR), hydride cracking was found in the form of long splits that allowed substantial leakage of fission products [8].
The main partners in the nuclear fuel fabrication work were the two large fuel fabrication plants at Electrostal (A-7340), at Ust'-Kamenogorsk (B-8857) and the Glazov metallurgical plant M-5057 at Chepetsk that fabricated the zircaloy cladding for fuel rods and assemblies.
With its low thermal neutron absorption, ATI's nuclear-grade zirconium alloy, Zircaloy, is the product of choice for fuel rods and fuel bundle components.
