Paper: Materials for Nuclear Power Systems

This Paper describes a resource designed to support introductory and higher level courses on nuclear power systems, focusing on the choice of materials. It centers on a pair of databases for materials of fission and fusion-based Nuclear Engineering - fuels, materials for fuel cladding, moderators and control rods, first-wall materials, materials for pressure vessels and heatexchangers, providing data for their properties. Where relevant the records contain data for both nuclear and engineering properties. The databases are accessed through the CES EduPack software, allowing its full data-retrieval and selection functionality to be exploited.
