Irradiation test of metallic fuel elements at fast test reactor JOYO is planned. By the development of fabrication technique of casting, structure, analysis and inspection, metallic fuel elements were fabricated. In this paper, the results of fabrication of U-Pu-Zr alloy fuel slugs are reported. The fuel slugs were fabricated using U metal, U-Pu alloy and Zr metal as raw materials by a casting equipment in an argon gas atmosphere glove box. By inspection, it was confirmed that the specifications were satisfied.
