Alloy 800HT is one promising candidate for use as a fuel cladding material in supercritical water-cooled rectors. In the present study, specific thermomechanical processing (TMP) was used to study the effects of grain size and grain boundary character distribution (GBCD) on the oxidation behavior of alloy 800HT in supercritical water (SCW). The processed samples were exposed to SCW at 600°C and 25 MPa for 100, 300, and 1000 h. The results showed that grain size and grain boundaries are important factors that affect the oxidation behavior of alloy 800HT in SCW. We also found that TMP improves the adhesion and integrity of the oxide scale.
