Pouchon, M. A.; not registered 

As an alternative concept,a particle arrangement(sphere-pac or vibro-pac type)is considered as fuel-form for burning actinides. The fuel material is potentially MOX or an Inert Matrix like yttria stabilized zirconia. A weak point of particle fuel is its thermal conductivity at startup.Before sintering initiates the macroscopic structure of the sphere-pac decreases the energy transport. For a partial
