Establishing Statistical Models of Manufacturing Parameters: Zircaloy-4 Cladding Tube Properties


The effect of pilgering and cold-work parameters on contractile strain ratio and mechanical properties was investigated using a large population of Zircaloy tubes. Statistical models were established between: (1) contractile strain ratio and tooling parameters. (2) mechanical properties (tensile test, creep test) and cold-work parameters, and (3) mechanical properties and stress-relieving temperature.
