Postirradiation examination results from SP-1

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This paper describes the postirradiation examination results from several of the fuel pins irradiated in the SP-1 test. The SP-1 test is the first of two tests irradiated in EBR-II to be examined. These tests are designed to provide a direct comparison of the performance potential of UO/sub 2/ and UN fuel pins under conditions anticipated for the SP-100 reactor. In addition, these tests examine various feasibility issues associated with each fuel system. These issues include: the high temperature swelling behavior of uranium nitride fuel, fuel-cladding compatibility and the potential for UO/sub 2//Li reactions by oxygen diffusion through the cladding.
