CX-009040: Categorical Exclusion Determination

Radiation Tolerance and Mechanical Properties of Nanostructured Ceramic/metal Composites – University of Nebraska
CX(s) Applied: B3.6, B3.10
Date: 08/09/2011
Location(s): Nebraska
Offices(s): Nuclear Energy

This project will consist of studying the ion irradiation and mechanical response of amorphous Si-C-O and Si-Al-C-O alloys, understanding the role of amorphous-ceramic/metal interface on irradiation and mechanical properties, and evaluating structural integrity and overall mechanical performance of the composite under extreme radiation conditions.
