Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, in collaboration with North Carolina State University, proposes to develop an outer shield material for use in packaging that is not only resistant to the corrosion, radiation, diffusion, and thermal cycling processes that affect fuel packages during long-term storage, but that is also wear tolerant and mechanically robust so that it can survive repeated handling and transportation.
