Abstract

Possible methods are investigated to increase operation properties of zirconium items by modifying their structure-phase and stress-strain states: by liquid metal reinforcement by ordered structures, by methods of solid phase alloying by fullerenes and carbon nanotubes, by methods of granular metallurgy; and also by modifying the surface conditions: by dynamic impact of microbodies and applying of fine surface layers (coatings) by electroarc and magnetron sputtering. The investigated modification methods can be used to increase operation properties of zirconium components of new generation LWR active cores.
