Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 21 B-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

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 do not balloon during LOCA accidents, do not react ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20 C-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

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 degradation phenomenon that limits the service li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 55 B-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

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 coolant accident, thereby blocking the flow of e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 55 B-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

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 (gwd/t). An advanced silicon carbide ceramic claddin...
