Classical molecular dynamics simulation of UO2 to predict thermophysical properties
Interatomic potential parameters of UO2, for a partially ionic potential model, were found out by a fitting method using isothermal compressibility data up to 1600 K. The inter-atomic potential usedExpand

Investigation on the martensitic transformation and the associated intermediate phase in U–2 wt%Zr alloy
Abstract In most of the binary uranium alloy systems, different metastable phases can be retained at room temperature depending on the rate of cooling of the gamma phase. On the other hand, in U-richExpand

Effect of titania addition on hot hardness of UO2
Abstract Large grain UO 2 is a potential fuel for LWR’s for achieving extended burn up. Large grains are obtained by addition of dopants like Nb 2 O 5 , TiO 2 , Cr 2 O 3 , V 2 O 5 etc. However,Expand
