Press release date: November 7, 2011

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.-Papers are invited for the 17th International Symposium on Zirconium in the Nuclear Industry, to be held Feb. 3-7, 2013, at the Taj Krishna in Hyderabad, India. The symposium is being sponsored by ASTM International Committee B10 on Reactive and Refractory Metals and Alloys.

The purpose of the symposium is to provide a forum for exchanging new information on the fabrication, testing, development and characterization of both traditional and new zirconium-based materials in the nuclear industry, including materials performance during normal, transient and accident conditions as well as materials behavior during intermediate and long-term storage conditions. Of particular interest are studies that focus on identifying and understanding the mechanism of zirconium-based materials behavior. Appropriate topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Basic metallurgy;
  • Processing and fabrication;
  • Alloy development;
  • Mechanical behavior;
  • Primary failure mechanisms;
  • Degradation mechanisms of failed fuel;
  • Corrosion and hydriding;
  • In-reactor performance;
  • Irradiation effects;
  • High-temperature and transient phenomena;
  • Mechanistic modeling of processing or performance; and
  • Intermediate and long-term storage performance.

    To participate in the symposium, presenters/authors must submit a 250-300 word preliminary abstract by Feb. 22, 2012. The abstract must include a clear definition of the objective and approach of the work discussed, pointing out material that is new, and present sufficient details regarding results. The symposium co-chairmen will notify you by May 22, 2012, of your paper's acceptability for presentation at the symposium.

    Symposium presenters are required to submit their papers to the Selected Technical Paper (STP), an online and printed, peer-reviewed publication for the international scientific and engineering community. Manuscripts to be peer reviewed for the STP are due no later than Nov. 19, 2012.
