    Thorium is a weakly radioactive metallic chemical element with the symbol Th and atomic number Thorium is silvery and tarnishes black when it is exposed to air, forming thorium dioxide; it is moderately hard, malleable, and has a high melting m is an electropositive actinide whose chemistry is dominated by the +4 oxidation state; it is quite reactive and can ignite in air when. A breeder reactor is a nuclear reactor that generates more fissile material than it consumes. Breeder reactors achieve this because their neutron economy is high enough to create more fissile fuel than they use, by irradiation of a fertile material, such as uranium or thorium that is loaded into the reactor along with fissile fuel. Breeders were at first found attractive because they.

(), p URANIUM-CERIUM Only limited data exist for the uranium-cerium system. Uranium and cerium are only partially miscible in the liquid state.(lj 2, 3,4) There is evidence of a eutectic at the uranium end of the system, perhaps at about C. (2,3) The solubility of cerium in liquid uranium is reported to.

The phase diagram of the thorium-molybdenum alloy system has been determined to be of the eutectic type with a eutectoid reaction associated with the thorium alpha-beta transformation.

X-ray, thermal, electrical resistance and metallographic methods have established the eutectic point at ± 10° C and ± wt % molybdenum. Neptunium-plutonium alloys have been examined over the complete range of compositions using thermal analysis, dilatometric and X-ray techniques.

The probable form of the constitution diagram has been determined, the most noteworthy feature being the extremely high solubilities of neptunium in the monoclinic α and β phases of plutonium. INTRODUCTION This investigation was undertaken in order to establish the constitutional diagram of the thorium -tantalum alloys and to increase the knowledge of thorium and tanta- lum metallurgy, CmoTTi1 has reported that thorium has a face-centered-cubic structure at temperatures up to io and a body-centered-cubic structure from i36o to.

Yemel'Yanov, A. Yevstyukhin. In ferrous alloys, uranium increases the elastic limit and the tensile strength. In high speed steels, it has been used to increase toughness and strength in amounts between –5%.

[4] Uranium-alloyed steels can be used at very low temperatures; nickel-uranium alloys are resistant to even very aggressive chemicals, including aqua regia.Uranium is a chemical element with the symbol U and atomic number It is a silvery-grey metal in the actinide series of the periodic table.A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence m is weakly radioactive because all isotopes of uranium are unstable; the half-lives of its naturally occurring isotopes range betweenyears and billion years.Staballoy is the name of two different classes of metal alloys, one class typically used for munitions and a different class developed for drilling rods.

Kinetic penetrators. In a military context, staballoys are metal alloys of a high proportion of depleted uranium with other metals, usually titanium or molybdenum, designed for use in kinetic energy penetrator armor-piercing munitions.
