2018 | AFC ACCOMPLISHMENTS 152 (CWRU) using hydrostatic extrusion at 815C (Figure 3).Tubes were produced from 14YWT material supplied by CEA as well as from DOE material. Final dimensions of the tubes were 230 mm long, 7 mm diameter and a 0.5 mm wall thickness. Local texture in the tubes was characterized using scanning electron microscopy electron backscatter detection (SEM-EBSD) to show a large grain size in the pilger processed material but finer grain size in the hydrostatically extruded material (Figure 4). Future work will center on producing tubes for future fueled irradiations in the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR). Figure 2.
