Description: This report describes the nondestructive (NDA) work done at Los Alamos during 1979 and 1980 as part of the New Brunswick Laboratory-sponsored evaluation of NDA of the uranium content of fabricated fuel rods for high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGR). The methods used (delayed neutron and passive gamma ray) are concisely described, and the results are summarized and compared in graphical and tabular form. The results indicate that, with the use of proper physical standards, accuracies within about 1 percent should be achievable by NDA procedures.
