The Status and Development Potential of Plate-Type Fuels for Research and Test Reactors

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recent U.S. Department of State action to restrict the shipment and use of highly enriched uranium for research and test reactors has renewed fuel development activity. The objective of these development activities is to increase the total uranium loading in the fuel meat so that enrichment reduction can be accomplished without significant performance penalties. This report characterizes the status and the potential for development of the currently utilized plate-type fuels for research and test reactors. The report also characterizes the newer high-density fuels which could be utilized in these reactors and indicates the impact of the utilization of both the ... continued below
