The fuel rod analysis computer program (FRAP-T) has been modified
to analyze transient fuel rod behavior in the gas cooled fast
reactor (GCFR). Major features modeled include -the effects of
helium coolant, ribbed cladding* pressure equalization system, and
316 stainless-steel material properties. The code capabilities
include models of elastic-plastic-creep deformation behavior, two^
dimensional heat conduction, rod ballooning, and transient axial
gas flow. The models are particularly relevant to GCFR transient
analysis in that partial or full blockage of the pressure equal-
ization system could cause a significant pressure differential
to exist during a helium depressurization, the GCFR design basis
accident. An analysis of the design, basis accident illustrating
the predictive capabilities of the code is presented.
