[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] This work reports preliminary results on the determination of the adhesion forces between a graphite cluster probe and Hastelloy X samples having different surface conditions using an Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) with an attached graphite cluster on a probe. Graphite-moderated, gas-cooled reactors have many potential benefits for the development of reliable, efficient and safe energy production infrastructures. Currently, the feasibility of the technology has been proven. However, a number of issues still remained and need further understanding before commercialization of VHTRs. One such an issue is the need for data on surface characterization and measurements of the adhesion force from graphite particles adhering to various potential, structural materials.--From public.pdf
