Influence of the temperature state on the damageability due to the creep of claddings of cylindrical fuel elements

Keywords: damageability; creep; fuel cladding; durability; computer simulation


This paper deals with the deformation and damageability of the fuel cladding of nuclear reactors, taking into account the creep and the temperature fields across the thickness. Mathematical models and quantitative estimates for durability of the fuel cladding, obtaining using computer simulations, are presented.
