|Abstract||In the last three decades, extensive effort has been devoted to the development of austenitic stainless steels for the liquid-metal fast breeder reactor in Japan. In the driver fuels of the Joyo MK-II experimental fast reactor core, which has been operated successfully at 100 MW(thermal) since 1982, 127 fuel pins are assembled with wrapping wire into the hexagonal duct. The material for cladding, duct, and wire is 20% cold-worked modified Type 316 stainless steel (PNC316) and mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel pellets, with 29 wt% Pu content and 94% theoretical density (TD). The peak burnup and neutron dose at the current Joyo MK-II core has reached 84 GWd/tonne U and 50 dpa, respectively. The postirradiation examination of those assemblies showed excellent performance of the MOX fuel and a negligible pin diameter increase, which demonstrates that the conservative design for the Joyo MK-II driver fuels is satisfactory. A life-limiting factor of the austenitic steel fuel assemblies was demonstrated to be dominated by the swelling-induced bundle distortion in a duct. Specifically, for characterizing swelling of PNC316 materials, microstructure changes of the irradiated cladding and duct were extensively analyzed by means of transmission electron microscopy. In PNC316 the improvement of swelling resistance had been conducted by adjusting 20% cold working and by adding minor alloying elements such as P, B, Ti, and Nb within the specification range of chemical compositions in the standard Type 316 stainless steel.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
