Alternative cladding materials have been proposed to replace the currently used zirconium (Zr)-based alloys, in order to improve the accident tolerance of light water reactor (LWR) fuel. Of these materials, there is a particular focus on iron-chromium-aluminum (FeCrAl) alloys that exhibit much slower oxidation kinetics in high-temperature steam than Zr-alloys. This behavior should decrease the energy release due to oxidation and allow the cladding to remain integral longer in the presence of high temperature steam, making accident mitigation more

Since the 2011 accident at the Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, there has been a worldwide effort to develop so-called accident tolerant fuel (ATF) technologies to enhance safety during design basis and beyond design basis accidents. Part of the ATF development effort involves replacing much of the zirconium-based materials in light water reactors (LWRs). This is due to the accelerated oxidation rate of zirconium at high temperatures potentially experienced during severe accidents, which led to the build-up of hydrogen
