Polymer Derived Silicon Carbide Ceramics for Nuclear Applications Book Excerpt:

The next generation of nuclear fission and fusion reactors depends upon the development of high performance structural materials. Silicon carbide (SiC) is being considered for a variety of nuclear reactor components because it possesses outstanding physical and chemical properties, including: high thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, chemical inertness, extreme hardness and small neutron capture cross-section. However, when exposed to energetic particles, SiC is observed to experience various radiation induced defects such as: vacancy clusters, dislocation loops and network dislocations at lower temperatures and swelling of the material causing voids/cavities at higher temperatures. Recent studies have shown nanostructured interfaces and nanoscale grains are more radiation damage tolerant. Polymer derived ceramics (PDCs) provide a unique route to develop SiC ceramics with nanostructural features that can help mitigate radiation defects. A novel class of SiC ceramics with controlled microstructures has been developed through tailoring of the molecular architecture of the starting precursor (allylhydridopolycarbosilane, Starfire® SMP-10). Nanostructural features in the form of graphene layers were incorporated via excess carbon from the addition of divinylbenzene (0-5 wt%) to the liquid SMP-10. It was observed that with increasing concentration of carbon, the 6H SiC (hexagonal) phase formed at the expense of 3C SiC (cubic). The utilization of PDCs also made possible the addition of sintering additives at the molecular level through a hydroboration reaction of SMP-10 with decaborane. This allowed the boron additives to be contained within the SiC grains, as opposed to on the grain boundaries, as is observed in traditional ceramic processing. Finally, these materials were irradiated using ion accelerator facilities located at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. AFM results indicate that utilizing PDC processing routes vs. traditional ceramic routes yielded a significant decrease in the amount of swelling from point defect accumulation due to radiation bombardment. This research contributes to current priorities in designing materials for the next generation of nuclear power plants that are anticipated to have minimal waste, decreased risk of proliferation and increased accident damage tolerance.

Chemically Bonded Phosphate Ceramics Book Excerpt:

This book brings together the latest developments in chemically bonded phosphate ceramics (CBPCs), including several novel ceramics, from US Federal Laboratories such as Argonne, Oak Ridge, and Brookhaven National Laboratories, as well as Russian and Ukrainian nuclear institutes. Coupled with further advances in their use as biomaterials, these materials have found uses in diverse fields in recent years. Applications range from advanced structural materials to corrosion and fire protection coatings, oil-well cements, stabilization and encapsulation of hazardous and radioactive waste, nuclear radiation shielding materials, and products designed for safe storage of nuclear materials. Such developments call for a single source to cover their science and applications. This book is a unique and comprehensive source to fulfil that need. In the second edition, the author covers the latest developments in nuclear waste containment and introduces new products and applications in areas such as biomedical implants, cements and coatings used in oil-well and other petrochemical applications, and flame-retardant anti-corrosion coatings. Explores the key applications of CBPCs including nuclear waste storage, oil-well cements, anticorrosion coatings and biomedical implants Demystifies the chemistry, processes and production methods of CBPCs Draws on 40 years of developments and applications in the field, including the latest developments from USA, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, China and India

The Role of Ceramics in a Resurgent Nuclear Industry Book Excerpt:

With fuel oil and natural gas prices near record highs and worldwide energy demands increasing at an alarming rate, there is growing interest in revitalization of the nuclear power industry within the United States and across the globe. Ceramic materials have long played a very important part in the commercial nuclear industry with applications throughout the entire fuel cycle; from fuel fabrication to waste stabilization. As the international community begins to look at advanced fuel cycles that minimize waste and increase proliferation resistance, ceramic materials will play an even larger role. Many of the advanced reactor concepts being evaluated operate at high-temperature requiring the use of durable, heat-resistant materials. Ceramic fuels are being investigated for a variety of Generation IV reactor concepts. These include the traditional TRISO-coated particles as well as advanced inert-matrix fuels. In order to minimize wastes and legacy materials, ceramic processes are also being applied to fuel reprocessing operations. Ceramic materials continue to provide a vital contribution in ''closing the fuel cycle'' by stabilization of associated low-level and high-level wastes in highly durable grout, ceramics, and glass. In the next five years, programs that are currently in the conceptual phase will begin laboratory- and engineering-scale demonstrations. This will require production-scale demonstrations of several ceramic technologies from fuel form development to advanced stabilization methods. Within the next five to ten years, these demonstrations will move to even larger scales and will also include radioactive demonstrations of these advanced technologies. These radioactive demonstrations are critical to program success and will require advances in ceramic materials associated with nuclear energy applications.
