Registration Open for Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Reactor Industry

Printer-friendly version

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.
