照射挙動解析コードの計算結果に基づき、高速実験炉常陽で照射されたB14照射試験燃料のPIE結果から得られた組織変化のO/M比依存性について評価した。解析の結果、定比組成の酸化物燃料の組織変化は、低O/M比の酸化物燃料と比べ燃料温度が低いにもかかわらず、組織変化が進展していた。これは、以下のように考えられる。第一に、定比組成の燃料は熱伝導が高いため、燃料温度が低下する。第二に高い酸素ポテシャルによりUO$$_{3}$$の蒸気圧が高くなり、ポア移動速度が速くなったものと考えられる。加えて、本解析結果は、中心空孔径は燃料温度だけでなく蒸気圧にも強く依存すること示した。

Based on thermal computation results obtained using an irradiation behavior analysis code, we have evaluated the effect of O/M ratio on fuel restructuring from the results of PIEs for the B14 irradiation test fuel, which was a mixed oxide fuel and was irradiated in the experimental reactor Joyo. The thermal computation results showed that fuel restructuring in the stoichiometric oxide fuel was accelerated, though the fuel temperature in the stoichiometric oxide fuel was evaluated as lower than that of the hypo-stoichiometric one. We explained this behavior as follows: first, the fuel temperature decreased due to the high thermal conductivity at stoichiometry; second, the pore migration velocity increased due to the increase in vapor pressure caused by the high vapor pressure of UO$$_{3}$$, which was derived from the high oxygen potential at stoichiometry. In addition, our results indicated that the central void diameter strongly depended on not only fuel temperature, but also vapor pressure.
