Abstract:

These tests were 1 1000 metal and graphite tensile specimens, 4 steel-wire resistivity specimens, and 8 stainless-steel spring specimens tested at LN2 and elevated temperatures. Of these, approx 700 tensile specimens, 4 resistivity specimens, and 4 spring specimens were irradiated at LN2 temperatures 2 2 O-ring seal test fixtures, irradiated in a gaseous-hydrogen environment and 3 14 unfueled fuel-element segments containing cemented orifices, irradiated at LN2 and ambient-air temperatures.
