Paper Title:
A Hafnium Material Control Rod Design and Manufacture
  Abstract

Because the metallic hafnium has good combination properties, that makes it the preferred material for control rods of nuclear reactors. To prevent the irradiation deformation and the mechanical property decrease of hafnium plates, and to increase the service life of the control rods, a new type of square-tube control rod is developed. The elemental composition, mechanical property, the corrosion resistance and the physical characteristics of hafnium are researched. Several tests are carried out after the product manufactured, which prove that the design and manufacture of the control rod meet the requirement of the technical conditions.
