Title: Development of Tapered Specimen Geometries for Accelerated Ion Irradiation Creep Testing of 316 Stainless Steel
Description: Given the rapid increase of average global temperatures coupled with the rise in global energy consumption, we need a high-power density, carbon-reduced energy source. Nuclear reactor concepts can provide such energy and advanced designs couple high temperature (>300°C), high stress (>100 MPa), high dose (>25 displacements per atom – dpa), and corrosive environments in-core to generate the necessary power. These coupled extreme environments place unparalleled dependencies on the irradiation creep strength of materials. We have developed tapered specimen geometries for ion irradiation creep testing to simulate in-core coupled extremes and to rapidly iterate across in-core environmental factors within a single or small subset of irradiation experiments.
Short Bio: Mackenzie Warwick is a fourth-year PhD candidate in NERS, with a focus on ion irradiation creep and material performance in coupled extreme environments. Mackenzie is an intern at Idaho National Laboratory researching crystal plasticity and modeling of creep mechanisms for long-term performance prediction.
