Post-Test Physical, Chemical and Metallurgical Analysis of SNAPTRAN-3 Fuel

Description: The fuel element damage which occurred during the SNAPTRAN-3 Destructive Test of a Snap 10A/2 reactor is described. Chemical analysis of the fuel indicated that approximately 15% of the hydrogen was released and that the core flux was higher toward the center both radially and axially. Metallurgical analysis of the fuel determined the presence of the epsilon, delta, and gamma phases in the grain structure and evidence of a possible alpha or beta phase.
