AbstractIn the CANDU™ (CANada Deuterium Uranium) nuclear reactor, the primary heat transport containment is a matrix of cold-worked Zr-2.5Nb pressure tubes containing pressurized heavy water, which extracts heat from the fuel bundles in the tube. In the last few years, periodical tests on removed tubes have established a significant tube-to-tube variability in fracture toughness due to variability in the as-installed tubes.
