PROGRAM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF PLUTONIUM RECYCLE FOR USE IN LIGHT-WATER- MODERATED REACTORS. Eleventh Quarterly Report, October 1-December 31, 1963

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A research program is being conducted to obtain experimental data in the irradiation of plutonium-enriched fuel to confirm a theoretical model for predicting isotopic composition and reactivity changes in plutonium-enriched, light-water-moderated reactors. Autoradiographs of unirradiated fuel indicated approximates 10% microsegregation of the PuO/sub 2/. The irradiations of flux wires and the project fuel element in VBWR are described; the fuel element was removed after approximates 5000 Mwd/t burnup when VBWR operation was stopped in Dec. 1963. Progress on the EPITHERMOS code is described. (D.L.C.)
