Design, fabrication and irradiation experience of actinide-hydride fuel capsule in the JMTR

Komori, Yoshihiro; Amezawa, Hiroo; Komukai, Bunsaku; Narui, Minoru*; Konashi, Kenji*

The actinide-hydride(UTh$$_{4}$$Zr$$_{10}$$H$$_{20}$$) fuel has been studied for transmutation of long-lived actinide contained in the high level wastes and the first irradiation test was successfully carried out in the Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR) of JAERI. Fuel pellets were fabricated by alloying and hydrogenation within an expected diameter error. The fuel pellets were designed to be irradiated below 873K on the fuel surface in consideration of hydrogen dissociation. Irradiation temperature was well agreed with designed value. Fuel burnup reached 0.2%FIMA for two JMTR operation cycles.
