ABSTRACT

The report contains the brief review of the existing methods for high density uranium alloys powder production. The results of researchers on comminution of U-Mo alloys by hydride-dehydride processing are presented. As a result of work it is shown that this method is suitable for comminution of U-Mo alloys. It provides the production of fuel grains of needed size, structure and phase composition with high efficiency. The investigations of interaction between U-Mo fuel grains and matrix material are being carried out now. The preliminary results has shown that compatibility of U-Mo powder manufactured by hydride-dehydride processing
