Abstract

The theory of hydride precipitation in zirconium alloys is revised and anisotropy of hydrogen and hydride is applied to study the temperature shift due to externally applied stress. The results confirm that the effect of external stress on hydride precipitation temperature is small for a given hydrogen concentration in solution and can be ignored. Thus, the hydrogen solubility data measured under no external load can be applied for the situations at stress concentrators.
