A study of the effects of minor additives to Pb-Bi eutectic: Designing novel Pb-Bi-X liquid alloys for heat transfer applications

Lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) is a promising heat transfer fluid candidate for fast-neutron nuclear reactors and for concentrating solar power systems, due to its low melting point and advantageous thermophysical properties, but suffers from causing liquid-metal corrosion in many solids used as struct...
