Augmentation du diamètre de tubes composites utilisés dans le domaine de l'énergie nucléaire

J. Nepoitier, Alfred Flipot

    Research outputpeer-review


    A technique has been developed to increase the internal diameter of fuel tubes for the belgian reactor BR2. The expansion is realised by passage through the tube of an olive of appropriate form. This technique can also be applied to the fabrication of small series of off-size tubes starting from current commercial products.
    An equation has been established expressing the tensile force necessary for the expansion of a tube.
