The process of materials selection for nuclear engineering designs is challenging due to the extreme environment and the limiting factor in deploying new nuclear technology. The intersection of mechanical, chemical, physical and nuclear properties is a challenging design space to be in. Additive manufacturing allows the creation of 3D shapes not easily achievable by other means. Introducing materials grading as a function of component shape enables 4D printing of components and might help to overcome the above mentioned challenge in nuclear engineering. In this work we select several examples of graded components and illustrate the material science issues one might face deploying this approach.
