- Swelling in prototypic FTR cladding and duct specimens is being determined from a series of three irradiations designed to cover a range of temperatures approximately 800 to 1500/sup 0/F and peak fluences of approximately 1 x 10/sup 22/, 6 x 10/sup 22/, and 1 x 10/sup 23/ n/cm/sup 2/. The length change measurements for the low fluence irradiation have been completed and are summarized in this report. No swelling, only shrinkage, was found in the 20 percent cold worked Type 316 stainless steel cladding specimens. This shrinkage is of the same magnitude and has the same temperature dependency as unirradiated, control samples. Annealed specimens did swell slightly. Details of the experiment and analysis are given.
