1. Barry, Robert Aaron. A NOVEL SYNTHESIS AND THERMODYNAMIC INVESTIGATION OF UMoO6.

Degree: MSc (MS/Ma??trise ??s sciences), Chemistry and Chemical Engineering/Chimie et g??nie chimique, 2015, Royal Military College of Canada

The Royal Military College Thermodynamic Fuel Model (RMC-TFM) has a history of setting boundary conditions for complete kinetic and fuel behaviour models. This thesis improved the RMC-TFM by refining our understanding of UMoO6 and the UO3-MoO3 phase diagram. A novel, aqueous synthesis method was developed to produce high purity UMoO6. A Cp(T) function (J K-1 mol-1) of 223.0844 ??? 0.1945T(K) + 2.2965x10-4T2(K) ??? 2.515493x106T -2(K) was determined with an associated error of ?? 5 % over a temperature range of 343-668 K. A ??Hotrans of -32 ?? 3 kJ mol-1 at 734 ?? 32 K was found and the meta-stable form of UMoO6 was added to the RMC-TFM. A ??Hodecomp of 82 ?? 10 kJ mol-1 at a Tdecomp of 1205 ?? 10 K was determined and used to calculate ??Hof, 298 K = -1972 ?? 13 kJ mol-1. Finally, the UO3-MoO3 phase diagram was used to refine and select the thermodynamic values for inclusion in the RMC-TFM and the results compared against the original benchmarking CT experiments.

Le mod??le thermodynamique de combustible nucl??aire du Coll??ge militaire royal du Canada (MTCN-CMRC) est utilis?? pour fixer des conditions aux limites pour les mod??les complets de cin??tique et de comportement du combustible. Cette th??se a am??lior?? le MTCN-CMRC en affinant notre compr??hension de UMoO6 et le diagramme de phase de UO3-MoO3. Une nouvelle m??thode de synth??se aqueuse a ??t?? d??velopp??e pour la production de UMoO6 ?? haute puret??. Une fonction pour la capacit?? de chaleur sp??cifique (J K-1 mol-1) a ??t?? d??termin??e comme ??tant 223.0844 ??? 0.1945T(K) + 2.2965x10-4T2(K) ??? 2.515493x106T -2(K) avec une erreur associ??e de ?? 5 % par rapport ?? une gamme de temp??rature de 343-668 K. Une enthalpie de transition, ??Hotrans, de 32 ?? 3 kJ mol-1 ?? 734 ?? 32 K a ??t?? trouv?? et le produit UMoO6 m??ta-stable a ??t?? ajout?? au MTCN-CMRC. Une ??Hod??comp de 82 ?? 10 kJ mol-1 ?? une Td??comp de 1205 ?? 10 K a ??t?? d??termin??e et utilis??e pour calculer ??Hof , 298 K = 1972 ?? 13 kJ mol-1. Enfin, le diagramme de phase de UO3-MoO3 a ??t?? utilis?? pour affiner et s??lectionner les valeurs thermodynamiques pour inclusion dans le MTCN-CMRC et les r??sultats ont ??t?? compar??s aux exp??riences originales de CT.
