GO TO PART Thermophysical Properties of a Generation IV Very High Temperature Reactor Material (Pages: ) Heather F. Jackson;. more resistant materials. Thus, this book is devoted to addressing various important fundamental and application aspects of materials that are used in nuclear reactors. Types of Nuclear Energy Nuclear energy can be derived from many forms such as nuclear fission energy, fusion energy, and radioisotopic energy. Nuclear Fission Energy. Plant Materials DOE-HDBK/ FUEL MATERIALS FUEL MATERIALS Nuclear plants require radioactive material to operate. Certain metals that are radioactive can be used to produce and sustain the nuclear reaction. This chapter discusses the materials used in the various nuclear applications. 2 Materials for Nuclear Applications As described above, materials of construction for nuclear applications must be strong, ductile and capable of withstanding the harsh environment to which they are subjected. Furthermore, for materials used in the core of a nuclear reactor, it is important that they have specific proper-File Size: 2MB.

The current practical application of refractory metals is relatively widespread (though arguably for specialty application) with examples being casting molds, wire filaments, reactant vessels for corrosive materials, hard tooling, and a myriad of applications where high density is desired.
