Cermet fuel for fast reactor – Fabrication and characterization

This article studied the properties of two compositions of cermet fuels, U-15wt%UO2 and U-30wt%UO2. The thermal conductivity of the sintered cermets was determined by the transient plane source (TPS) technique using a Thermal Constant Analyzer. It was found that the thermal conductivity increased for both of the cermet compositions with increasing temperature. This was considered to be favorable as higher thermal conductivities ...

Transient plane source technique for measurement of thermal conductivity of U and T91 for fast reactor application 

Thermal conductivity is one of the most important properties of fuel and cladding material. In this study, the thermal conductivity of uranium and T91 steel were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of T91 increased gradually to a point, then decreased. Fast reacting cladding materials require high thermal conductivities, and T91 was found to have higher conductivities than other commercial materials. As ...

Effects of carbon fillers in thermally conductive polypropylene based resins

Researchers have determined the potential of increasing the thermal conductivity of insulating polymers by adding conductive fillers. One common application this may be used for, is fuel cell bipolar plates. In this article, researchers tested varying amounts of three different carbon fillers (black carbon, synthetic graphite particles, and carbon nanotubes), by adding them to polypropylene. Both single fillers and combination fillers were studied for their potential effects on the thermal ...
