Fabrication of uranium-plutonium-zirconium alloy fuel for fast breeder reactor by low pressure casting

Nakamura, Kinya*; Ogata, Takanari*; Iwai, Takashi; Arai, Yasuo

Uranium-plutonium-zirconium(U-Pu-Zr) alloy is promising for fast breeder reactor. Uranium-zirconium alloy has been developed on a engineering scale in Japan. In the present experiment, U-Pu-Zr alloy fuel was fabricated by low pressure casting. It was cleared that the alloy rods had homogeneous composition and diameter, density, length, straightness and composition were satisfied with the standard of fabrication.
