Thesis Title: Assessment of Aging Degradation Mechanisms of Alloy 709 for Sodium Fast Reactors

 Abstract: The objective of the research is to develop an understanding of creep-fatigue behavior, microstructural evolution, and internal damage during creep-fatigue testing in order to confidently predict long-term (500,000 hr) behavior at elevated temperatures (550C) for use in fast reactor structural applications. This is a DOE NEUP funded research project.
