accommodation of the wet steam at the highest temperatures results in temperature drops of several thousand degrees celsius, thus the turbine baskets are made of cnc machined aluminum alloy (aa) [ 17 ] to withstand the high temperatures. in addition to the super-alloy material of the baskets, the rotor and bearings are often made of nickel-base superalloys with optimized high temperature mechanical properties such as hy-100 and ht-919 [ 68 ].
the first major breakthrough in power plants was the discovery of fuel rods, which stabilized the nuclear chain reaction [ 19 ]. today, the reactor is cooled by water, rather than air. this concept was introduced by general electric and developed for the u.s. power reactor by american electric power company (aep), and for other countries by westinghouse electric company (weco), companies both based in the united states. the spent nuclear fuel is still cooled for a short time, but there has been no further development of this application beyond the technology already known. more recently, ideas have been considered for removal of the high-level waste resulting from the spent fuel. for example, in the high-level waste facility at the reprocessing plant in la hague, france, the waste is cooled by water for some 1000 years before being reprocessed. some people may try to develop a liquid metal as fuel or coolant in the future to lower the temperature of the future spent fuel. liquid metal is also used as a fuel in the fast breeder reactor because of the large amount of energy contained in liquid metal [ 19 ]. high temperature and pressure hydrogen gas, which is only formed when uranium is heated to a few thousand degrees celsius, is not only a potential fuel for the nuclear chain reaction but also for producing energy for transportation fuel. for example, hydrogen in a cryogenically cooled reactor needs to be warmed to 500-600 degrees c. to produce hydrogen gas. argon gas is commonly used because it is non-combustible, and hydrogen can be combined with argon to produce compounds with lower energy potential than hydrogen gas. such compounds are commonly used in rocket motors to produce energy in a fraction of the time it takes using hydrogen. in addition, hydrogen can be made from water and nitrogen [ 20 ].
