Data Report for the Instrumented Fuel Assembly IFA-513

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This report presents the in-reactor data collected to date from the NRC/PNL Halden test assembly IFA-513. The irradiation test is part of an experimental program entitled 11 Experimental Support and Development of Single Rod Fuel Codes 11 sponsored by the Fuel Behavior Branch of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The purpose of this program is to reduce the uncertainties of predicting the thermal and mechanical behavior of an operating nuclear fuel rod. Fuel centerline temperatures, cladding elongation, internal fuel rod pressures, and local powers at the thermocouple positions are shown as a function of time for the irradiation period ... continued below

Description

This report presents the in-reactor data collected to date from the NRC/PNL Halden test assembly IFA-513. The irradiation test is part of an experimental program entitled 11 Experimental Support and Development of Single Rod Fuel Codes 11 sponsored by the Fuel Behavior Branch of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). The purpose of this program is to reduce the uncertainties of predicting the thermal and mechanical behavior of an operating nuclear fuel rod. Fuel centerline temperatures, cladding elongation, internal fuel rod pressures, and local powers at the thermocouple positions are shown as a function of time for the irradiation period from November 1978 to January 1980. The local powers were derived from neutron detector readings while the other variables were measured directly. The general trends in the data as a function of burnup are presented and discussed. Detailed analysis of the data is not made, but topical reports discussing certain aspects of the data are referenced. Descriptions of the assembly, instrumentation and calibration, and data processing methods are also presented.
