The effect of Sn on autoclave corrosion performance and corrosion mechanisms in Zr-Sn-Nb alloys

Abstract:

The desire to improve the corrosion resistance of Zr cladding material for hig h burn-up has resulted in a general trend among fuel manufacturers to develop alloys with reduced levels of Sn. While commonly accepted, the reason for the improved corrosion performance observed for low-tin zirconium alloys in high-temperature aqueous environments remains unclear. High-energy synchrotron X-ray diffraction was used to characterize the oxides formed by autoclave exposure on Zr-Sn-Nb alloys with tin ...
