The six energy systems to be developed involve, specifically, developing a gas-cooled fast reactor
, a lead alloy liquid metal-cooled reactor, a molten salt reactor, a sodium liquid metal-cooled reactor, a supercritical water-cooled reactor, and a very high temperature gas reactor, Abraham said.
The other five systems include: gas-cooled fast reactors
, lead-cooled fast reactors, supercritical water-cooled reactors, sodium-cooled fast reactors and very high-temperature reactors.
In the paper "Effects of a Mixed Zone on TGO Displacement Instabilities of Thermal Barrier Coatings at High Temperature in Gas-Cooled Fast Reactors
," thermally grown oxide has been studied as suitable protective coatings, offering thermal insulation, heat resistance, and corrosion resistance for Generation IV nuclear energy systems.
