The creep of Zircaloy in reactors has a strong influence on the performance of several components. Most creep calculations are associated with efforts to forecast the performance of fuel rods. Other components, for example, Zircaloy grids, springs, and guide tubes, can also undergo creep when subjected to a load. The four most common applications will be reviewed in this chapter.
