Silicon Carbide Clad Thoria Plutonia Fuel for Light Water Reactors

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,188.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
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
Award Amount:
$149,683.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Matthew W. Ales, Mr. – 434-942-5398
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
Award Amount:
$999,446.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
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
Award Amount:
$149,892.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Gregory Markham, Mr. – 434-660-8958
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

Advanced Reusable Mandrel for Ceramic Cladding Fabrication

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,983.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
The use of advanced ceramic materials, such as silicon carbide, for light water reactor fuel cladding is being investigated, in part due to the increased safety margin afforded by this technology over conventional zircaloy metallic claddings. In light of the Fukushima events, safety concerns have… More
