As always I would like to acknowledge the support of the ASM editorial and pro. Zirconium alloy (Zr) joints welded by electron beam welding technique were characterized by studying the microstructures and corrosion tests.
X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscope analysis showed that the joints were consisted of α-Zr and β-Zr phases. 1. Introduction. Zirconium alloys were developed for use as nuclear fuel cladding (amongst other nuclear reactor components) in the early s.A number of reviews of their corrosion mechanisms, both out- and in-reactor, have been published since then,.The most comprehensive of the recent reviews, are unfortunately out of print, and so a further review at this.
The requirements for stabilizing the quality of welded joints is one of the most urgent problems of resistance spot welding of zirconium alloy during production cycles of fuel assemblies.

Zirconium alloy fuel cladding experiences two types of corrosion; one from the interactions with the coolant water on outer surface, the second with the fuel material and fission products inside the tube.
Pulsed laser spot welding of intersection points of zirconium alloys straps was performed. Weld bead size, microstructure and the corrosion behavior of weld bead were investigated. With the increasing laser peak power or number of shots, the weld width of the beads increased, the protrusion decreased and the dimple increased with further increase in heat input.
Zirconium alloys are solid solutions of zirconium or other metals, a common subgroup having the trade mark ium has very low absorption cross-section of thermal neutrons, high hardness, ductility and corrosion of the main uses of zirconium alloys is in nuclear technology, as cladding of fuel rods in nuclear reactors, especially water reactors.

Bend Test. The minimum bend radius for successful welds on all zirconium alloys is 5 times the material thickness. This book details the many forms of weld corrosion and the methods used to minimize weld corrosion. Chapters on specific alloys groups--carbon and alloy steels, stainless steels, high-nickel alloys, and nonferrous alloys--describe both general welding characteristics and the metallurgical factors that influence corrosion s: 1.
This article discusses the welding processes that can be used for welding any of the zirconium alloys. These include gas-tungsten arc welding (GTAW), gas-metal arc welding (GMAW), plasma arc welding (PAW), electron-beam welding (EBW), laser-beam welding (LBW), friction welding (FRW), resistance welding (RW), resistance spot welding (RSW), and.

Additional advantages of zirconium alloys for long term nuclear waste disposal include excellent radiation stability and % compatibility with existing Zircaloy fuel cladding to alleviate any concerns of galvanic corrosion.
No metal or alloy is resistant to corrosive attack in all chemical environments. Zirconium is no exception, but it does.
The joining of two chemically dissimilar metals is a challenge due to the formation of hard and brittle intermetallic compounds (IMCs) in the diffusion layer. The joining of steel/Fe with aluminum (Al) and zirconium (Zr) alloy is particularly important for the automobile and nuclear industries, respectively.
The Al–steel and Zr–steel joints produced by conventional fusion welding exhibit IMCs. on the corrosion behavior of welded joints from zirconium alloys with low niobium contents in water and steam at elevated temperatures (in german) Journal Article Spindler, H. Zirconium- and titanium-based dissolver vessels containing highly radioactive and concentrated corrosive nitric acid solution needs to be joined to the rest of fuel reprocessing plant made of AISI type L stainless steel (SS), which demands high integrity and corrosion resistant dissimilar joints.
Solid-state joining process of friction welding was proposed in the present work to join. Although zirconium can be fusion-welded to the reactive or refractory metals mentioned, direct fusion welding to these metals causes solid solution hardening and severely reduces the bend ductility of the weld area and corrosion resistance of the weld.
Zirconium alloy welded with effective inert gas protection showing no discolouration. Preparation for welding Zirconium is highly sensitive to contamination by active gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen and absorption of these materials can have a significant effect on mechanical, chemical and thermal properties 2.
Galvanic corrosion assessment of a friction stir welded (FSWed) joint of H32 aluminum and dual phase (DP) steel alloys is conducted by coupling the top and bottom surfaces of the weld joint with the base metals (BMs) in the presence of a % NaCl solution. The complex nature of the stir zone (SZ) causes different microstructures and corresponding corrosion behaviors across the.

This article discusses the weldability characteristics of cobalt-base corrosion-resistant (CR) alloys, titanium-base CR alloys, zirconium-base CR alloys, and tantalum-base CR alloys that assist in the selection of suitable alloy and welding method for producing high-quality welds.
The zircalloys are alloys of zirconium which contain small amounts of tin, iron, and chromium. These alloys can be welded in the open in much the same manner as titanium.
The electron beam process and the resistance welding processes have been used for joining zirconium. The secret to the successful welding of titanium is cleanliness. Small. The corrosion kinetics of zirconium alloys exposed to high temperature (°C) wa- ter varies widely from alloy to alloy, as shown in Figure Aa.
22,23 As shown by the black lozenge points, Zircaloy-4 shows an initially fast corrosion layer increase which slows. Keywords: Zirconium alloys, corrosion, supercritical water Abstract Corrosion tests in supercritical water and °C steam were performed on Zr-based model alloys up to days to evaluate the potential use of Zr alloy cladding in the supercritical water reactor (SCWR).
Corrosion. Zirconium alloys have low neutron absorption, high strength and high corrosion resistance under different operating conditions. Compared to stainless steels, zirconium tubing is desirable because of its texture.
The metal has a high yield strength and is more resistant to irradiation creep and stress corrosion cracking.
Zirconium is a specified minor addition to a number of high strength wrought aluminum alloys in the international standard AA series. Zirconium also features in overhead conductor cable alloys exposed to high temperature environments and in certain specialty casting alloys. Zirconium Grades RRand R were investigated for deep sour gas well applications.
Test methods include autoclave, constant strain, sustained load, and constant strain rate techniques. Test results indicate that these alloys have excellent resistance to general corrosion and to stress corrosion cracking in sulfide environments.
High corrosion resistance of welded joints was found only after electron beam welding of Zircaloy-4  as well as electron-beam  and laser  welding of commercially pure zirconium.
