Study on silicide fuel behavior during RIA

Yanagisawa, Kazuaki

Pulse irradiation tests; simulation of reactivity initiated accident (RIA) were conducted on un-irradiated silicide mini-plate fuels. A failure threshold and its mechanism as well as a water channel closure (plate bowing) were studied as a function of deposited energy and peak cladding surface temperature. For the latter, not only single plate configuration but also triplet plate configuration with a restricted cross flow was conducted. Obtained data is revealed to be useful for licensing of research reactor fuels.
