Experimental Apparatus for In-Pile Studies of : Creep of Nuclear Fuels, and Young's Modulus of Structural Materials; DISPOSITIFS EXPERIMENTAUX POUR ETUDES EN PILE DU FLUAGE DES MATERIAUX COMBUSTIBLES, ET DU MODULE D'ELASTICITE DES MATERIAUX DE STRUCTURE
- Two experimental apparatusus for in-pile study are described. The first is for creep tests under compression of reactor fuels and the second is for the study of Young's modulus of metallic samples during irradiation. In the creep device, three samples are simultaneously tested with identical stress by an elastic membrane deformed under pressure by a carbon dioxide circuit. The length of the specimens is compared to a calibration standard before and after irradiation. The control and safety devices are emphasized. The apparatus for studying radiation effects on Young's modulus is described in detail. The principle used is discussed. (J.S.R.)
