    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.37, No.2, pp. 153-174, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.037.153

    Abstract Graphite materials are widely used in gas-cooled nuclear reactors as both moderators and reflectors. The graphite properties change when the microstructure damage occurs due to the in-core radiation and oxidation, thereby having a strong impact on the service life of graphite. In this paper, the X-ray tomography and the boundary element method (BEM) are introduced to the microstructure modeling and numerical simulations of both the mechanical and thermal property changes of nuclear graphite due to radiolytic oxidation. The model is established by the three-dimensional X-ray scan on the isotropic nuclear graphite Gilsocarbon, which is used… More >
