Influence of pressure on cesium release from irradiated fuel at temperatures up to 2,773K

Kudo, Tamotsu; Hidaka, Akihide  ; Nakamura, Takehiko; Uetsuka, Hiroshi

This article describes the effects of system pressure on the cesium release obtained in the first two tests of radionuclides release from irradiated fuel, VEGA-1 and VEGA-2, which were conducted at the same maximum temperature of 2773K and different system pressures. The fractional releases of Cs in VEGA-2 test at 1.0MPa were smaller than those in VEGA-1 test at atmospheric pressure. In order to quantify the difference of the release rate in the two tests due to the pressure, the release rate coefficients of Cs were evaluated. The Cs release rate coefficient in VEGA-2 was smaller by a factor of about 2.8 than that in VEGA-1 at temperature above about 1900K.
