Abstract : Inclusions in derby and ingot uranium have been identified by X-ray diffraction methods. Metallographic and microradiographic examinations have shown that inclusions of MgF2, UO2, UN, and UO are concentrated at the top of derby and ingot metal by gravity separation. UC inclusions are distributed throughout the ingot metal. The amount of the carbide phase in the ingot varies with the temperature maintained during remelt of derby metal. jg p.4
