Outline Metallurgical Issues in Underground Repository Reinforcement Support for Nuclear Materials Storage in simulated Yucca Mountain Environment used for Corrosion Issues
Issues related to I-beams (Low Carbon) and Rock Bolts (Med. Carbon)
Results 1. Corrosion Tests- Effect of Ionic Concentration (1x,10x,100x), Temperature, concentration and aeration/deaeration effects in YM waters (RB and I-Beam)
2. Hydrogen Permeation Tests
3. Environmentally Assisted Corrosion Tests - Stress Corrosion Cracking/Hydrogen Embrittlement in 100x YM water concentration at Room Temperature and 85oC (I-Beams)
