Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 January 1979
Status: inactive
Page Count: 14
ICS Code (Fissile materials and nuclear fuel technology): 27.120.30
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This practice covers the procedures for postirradiation examination of cladding, determination of breached nuclear fuel elements, selection of material and tests for radiation studies, determination of radiation conditions, conduction of tests for mechanical properties of cladding, and the reporting of data.

1.2 The purpose of this practice is to provide detailed guidelines for the postirradiation examination of fuel element cladding and to achieve better correlation and interpretation of the data in the field of radiation effects.

1.3 This practice may be applied to metallic cladding from all types of fuel elements. The tests described in this practice for determining mechanical properties of the fuel element cladding practice should be included in the preirradiation characterization of the cladding and for planning irradiation effects tests for evaluation of materials for cladding and other components in nuclear reactors.

NOTE 1--The values stated in SI units as described in Standard E 380 are to be regarded as the standard.
