Irradiation behavior analyses of oxide fuel pins for SFR high breeding cores

A mixed oxide fuel pin concept with annular pellets and an ODS cladding is a possible driver fuel for commercialized Sodium-cooled fast reactor (SFR) core. This fuel concept was considered with low breeding ratio as a standard, break-even breeding cores and cores with high breeding ratio (high breeding cores). Some calculations of fuel pin irradiation performance of (U,Pu) oxide fuel and minor actinides bearing oxide fuel were conducted by a fuel performance analysis code CEDAR developed in JAEA to understand the steady state irradiation behavior of fuel pins for the cores with high breeding ratio. The fuel temperature profiles, fuel and cladding deformation profiles, and radial temperature distribution at end of life (EOL) were evaluated. Those results show that the MOX fuel pin having the specifications and irradiation conditions used in this investigation would be irradiated moderately up to approximately 250 GWd/t with well integrity.
