Influence of gas pressure and composition on fuel temperature observed in the USNRC/Halden assembly IFA-430

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A series of fuel behavior experiments have been conducted in the Heavy Boiling Water Reactor in Halden, Norway, to assess the effects of fuel rod internal fill gas pressure and composition on fuel temperature. Fill gases composed of He, 90% He/10% Xe, and 95% He/5% Xe at pressures from 0.1 to 5.0 MPa, were introduced into two light water reactor (LWR) design fuel rods in the Instrumented Fuel Assembly 430. These two fuel rods are connected to a gas flow system which allows the fill gases to be exchanged during nuclear operation. The two rods are identical in design except ... continued below
