Production Test IP-247-A-8-FP, irradiation of 1.47% enriched self-supported I&E fuel elements in ribless process tubes

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of the test detailed in this report is to irradiate self-supported fuel elements under conditions of severity comparable in these expected for future loadings of this geometry, to attempt to determine the resistance to corrosion of cooled cladding, the effect of supports on cladding corrosion and coolant flow patterns, and the relative resistance to ``hot-spot`` type attack and rupture of ``projection`` fuel elements and rib supported elements. This test will authorize irradiation of four columns of self-supported and four columns of rib-supported I and E, 1.47% enriched fuel elements until two ruptures are sustained in each group on … continued below
