Development of fabrication technology of U-Pu-Zr alloy fuel slug, 3; Injection casting tests of U-8.5wt%-10wt%Zr alloy

Nakamura, Kinya*; Yokoo, Takeshi*; Iwai, Takashi; Arai, Yasuo

Uranium-plutonium-zirconium alloy is one of the candidate nuclear fuels for fast reactors. Development of fabrication technology is progressing and irradiation tests of the U-Pu-Zr alloy fuel pins in JOYO fast reactor are scheduled in collaboration with Central Research Institute of Electric Power Industry and Japan Atomic Energy Agency. As a result of the first injection castingtest of U-Pu-Zr alloy slug in Japan, the cast alloy slug met with target specifications such as length, diameter and chemical composition.
