The pressure tubes in Indian Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors are made from Double Melted (DM) ingot or Quadruple Melted (QM) Zr-2.5Nb ingots. For safety assessment of the reactors, the creep deformation occurring normal to the tube axis is one of the important properties to be characterised. In present work, creep behaviour of Zr-2.5Nb pressure tube manufactured from both DM and QM ingots is studied. Tests have been performed at three different temperatures each corresponding to three different stress levels. The activation energy of creep deformation and stress exponent were evaluated and it was found that the results were in close range for DM and QM specimens.
||Planned: Stand-alone book in which only your symposium’s papers would appear (indicate title in comments section below)
