    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The incompatibility of Zircaloy-2 and Inconel X-750 has been investigated between 1000°C and 1200°C (1200°C being the currently allowable maximum temperature in the acceptance criteria for ECCS for water reactors). It has been found for the temperatures of 1000°C and 1200°C that oxide thicknesses of 2 and 30 μ respectively protect the Zircaloy-2 against attack by Inconel X-750.
