Registration Open for Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Reactor Industry

Registration is now open for the 20th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry, to be held June 20-23, 2022, at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Ottawa, (Ontario, Canada). The workshop is sponsored by ASTM International’s reactive and refractory metals and alloys committee (B10).

The purpose of the symposium is to provide a forum for exchanging new information on the fabrication, testing, development, and characterization of both traditional and new zirconium-based materials used in the nuclear industry. This includes materials performance during normal, transient, and accident conditions as well as materials behavior during intermediate and long-term storage conditions. Of particular interest are studies that focus on identifying and understanding the mechanisms and behaviors of zirconium-based materials.

Appropriate topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Basic metallurgy and processing;
  • Fabrication and alloy development;
  • Mechanical behavior;
  • Corrosion and hydriding;
  • In-reactor performance;
  • Irradiation effects;
  • High-temperature and transient phenomena;
  • Intermediate and long-term storage performance; and
  • Coatings for accident tolerant fuel.
