  1. 1. Microstructure of Zirconium Alloys Oxidized in Steam

    Author : Pia Tejland; [2009]

    Abstract : Zirconium alloys are widely used in nuclear reactors as fuel cladding tubes because of their low thermal neutron capture cross-section, good corrosion properties and satisfactory mechanical properties. However, the main limiting factor of these materials is the oxidation behavior. READ MORE

  2. 2. Microscopy of high temperature oxidation of iron and some stainless steels

    Author : Torbjörn Jonsson; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water vapour; sulphur dioxide; FIB; X20; stainless steel; 353MA; EDX; KCl; FIB SEM; SEM; microstructure; TEM; iron; High-temperature oxidation; in-situ ESEM;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the high temperature oxidation of iron and some stainless steels. The oxide scales, as well as the subjacent metal, were investigated using a range of electron and ion microscopy techniques, including SEM, TEM, EDX and FIB. The aim was to link the microstructural observations to the oxidation mechanisms of the materials. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the effect of microstructural variation on the mechanical properties and deformation behavior of ductile iron. To research and determine these effects, two grades of ductile iron, (i) GJS-500-7 and (ii) high silicon GJS-500-14, were cast in a geometry containing several plates with different section thicknesses in order to produce microstructural variation.
