Corrosion of candidate fuel cladding alloys has been a major concern in fuel cladding materials selection in the Canadian Gen-IV SCWR conceptual design. In this study, austenitic stainless steel 310S was cold rolled in small steps in order to create severe shear texture near the surface. Surface characteristics of the cold rolled specimen and the as-received specimens were compared. Their SCW corrosion resistance was studied a static autoclave, and evaluated using a FIB microscope. Although weight changes remains similar from both samples, the subsurface has shown marked differences, which could affect their long terms corrosion and stress corrosion cracking resistance.
