- Brittle bonds and the factors controlling their formation have been of substantial concern in the production of dip canned fuel elements. Detection of brittle bonds has been by the chisel test and by metallographic examinations. At best, these are qualitative tests and do not establish the degree of brittleness. For this reason bond tensile strength analysis has been suggested. Tests have been run to determine if a change in canning variables could be detected by a change in bond strength.
