    The latest in this popular series provides 44 peer-reviewed papers on the latest international research covering all aspects of zirconium alloy properties and performance relevant to the nuclear industry.

    Topics address:

    • All aspects of the fuel cycle

    • Basic metallurgy

    • Spent fuel

    • Corrosion

    • Mechanical properties

    • Deformations mechanisms

    • Failure mechanisms

    • LOCA and Transients.

    These papers provide examples of studies where experimental techniques are combined with analytical tools and calculations; reflect a stronger trend towards efforts that enable fundamental in-reactor measurements, which are essential for further development of experimental techniques as well as for the possibility to enhance the development of improved alloys; and examine an increasing number of alternative alloys being developed and verified.
