Abstract

Pure uo2 sinters readily at temperatures below 1600°c when non-stoichiometric oxygen introduced during the presintering treatment is available for diffusion and subsequent densification. In the absence of excess oxygen sintering occurs at temperatures above 1600°C by self-diffusion of stoichiometric oxygen in uo2 • Grain growth occurs when open porosity has been eliminated and is controlled by the diffusion rate of closed pores in uo2.
