Silicon Carbide Clad Thoria Plutonia Fuel for Light Water Reactors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Greg Markham, Mr.
Award Amount: $99,188.00
Abstract:
Light water reactor (LWR) fuel used in current reactors use slightly enriched uranium oxide fuel pellets with zirconium alloy (zircaloy) clad. Because the clad oxidizes in the reactor coolant, the fuel burnup is limited to a maximum of five years, or a batch average of 55 gigawatt days per ton… More

Minimizing Fuel Assembly Distortion in LWRs to Prolong Life and Increase LWR Sustainability

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Matthew W. Ales, Mr. – 434-942-5398
Award Amount: $149,683.00
Abstract:
Topic 20c of DOEs SBIR solicitation seeks grant applications to develop technologies for the assessment and mitigation of materials degradation in Light Water Reactors in order to extend the service life including methods that can mitigate or predict irradiation and aging effects An important… More

Silicon Carbide Clad Thoria Plutonia Fuel for Light Water Reactors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Greg Markham, Mr.
Award Amount: $999,446.00
Abstract:
Statement of Problem: Light water reactor fuel used in current reactors uses slightly enriched uranium oxide (UO2) fuel pellets with zirconium alloy (zircaloy) clad. Zircaloy clad loses all of its tensile strength at temperatures of 500 oC, and balloons outward during the early phases of a loss of… More

Low Cost Silicon Carbide Fibers, Tapes, and Architecture for Accident Tolerant Nuclear Fuel Cladding and Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Gregory Markham, Mr. – 434-660-8958
Award Amount: $149,892.00
Abstract:
Since the Fukushima accident, the DOE, nuclear fuel suppliers, and EPRI, have begun to focus R & amp;D efforts on advanced LWR fuel and components that are more accident tolerant than current zirconium alloys. One area of interest are fuels and components fabricated from ceramic composites that… More
