Annealing tests of in-pile irradiated oxide coated U–Mo/Al–Si dispersed nuclear fuel
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
U–Mo/Al based nuclear fuels have been worldwide considered as a promising high density fuel for the conversion of high flux research reactors from highly enriched uranium to lower enrichment. In this paper, we present the annealing test up to 1800°C of in-pile irradiated U–Mo/Al–Si fuel plate samples. More than 70% of the fission gases (FGs) are released during two major FG release peaks around 500°C and 670°C. Additional characterisations of the samples by XRD, EPMA and SEM suggest that up to 500°C FGs are released from IDL/matrix interfaces. The second peak at 670°C representing the main release of FGs originates from the interaction between U–Mo and matrix in the vicinity of the cladding.

Determination of residual stress in nitrided steels with transmission angle-dispersive diffraction JEGOU, Sébastien; BARRALLIER, Laurent (2014)Residual stress analysis with transmission angle-dispersive diffraction is carried out on nitrided steels. It aims evaluating residual stresses within the ferritic matrix but also within secondary phases such as nano-scale ...
FABRE, Agnès; EVANS, H-P; BARRALLIER, Laurent; SHARIF, K.J; DESVIGNES, Marc (Elsevier, 2013)Micropitting is a form of surface fatigue damage that occurs in the gear teeth. It is due to the effect of variation in the mechanical loading in the contact zone between the two teeth, induced especially by flank roughness. ...

JEGOU, Sébastien; KUBLER, Régis; BARRALLIER, Laurent; ROCH, François (2009)Nitriding of steels is an important treatment in duplex hardening methods. This treatment is known in the art but some advances still need to be done in terms of residual stress understanding. Although residual stresses ...
JEGOU, Sébastien; KUBLER, Régis; BARRALLIER, Laurent (Trans Tech Publications, 2010)This work deals with the development of residual stresses during nitriding of steels. The main features of a chemico-thermo-mechanical model of nitriding are presented. A micro-macro approach is applied based on volume ...
