Evaluation of Irradiated OMRE Fuel Elements First Core Loading

Description: Abstract: Irradiated fuel elements from the Organic Moderated Reactor Experiment (OMRE) first core loading have been examined and evaluated to determine: (1) the stability of the floating plate fuel element design, (2) the stability of the stainless steel clad UO2 - stainless steel cermet core fuel plates under irradiation and exposure to the organic coolant, (3) the extent and nature of deposits on the fuel element services, and (4) the distribution of burnup in the fuel elements.

Fast Neutron Flux Measurements and Analysis in SM-1 and PM-2A Core and Vessel Mockups

Description: Abstract: This technical report contains a summary of experimental and analytical work performed on cold clean SM-1 Core II with special components and PM-2A Core I each with thermal shield and vessel mockups. The purpose of this work was to define the neutron intensity and spectra to which the pressure vessels are subjected in order to assess the effect of irradiation on the vessel lifetimes. The radial distributions of the energy dependent neutron flux per unit power in the core and vessel m… more
