GAIN Innovative Materials Research Follow-up Workshop

June 30, 2022

The purpose of this webinar was to:

  • Discuss a potential new U.S. Department of Energy Program on innovative materials research for fuel cladding for advanced reactors.
  • Review the results of the GAIN Innovative Materials Research Workshop help on June 15, 2022.
  • Inform program objectives and gather supplier, developer, university researcher, and national laboratory input to determine priority research direction

The scope of the Innovative Cladding Materials Research Program will include the following:

  • Innovative cladding materials research, including core materials that provide structure (e.g., grid plates, materials that are removed from the core along with refueling activities)
  • Innovative characterization and testing methods
  • Innovative new methods of qualifying material “quicker”
  • Research needs spanning the next 20 years
