Advanced reactor experiments for sodium fast reactor fuels (ARES) project; Transient irradiation experiments for metallic and MOX fuels

The ARES project is planned to re-establish capabilities for transient testing SFR fuels at the TREAT facility. A full suite of complementary in-pile capability will be available for future users with devices to suit a variety of testing objectives ranging from analytical experiments to highly prototypic experimental simulations. These capabilities extend from fresh to irradiated fuels leveraging a large library of irradiated SFR fuels from EBR-II and FFTF experimental programs. The fresh fuel commissioning tests on metallic fuels will support detailed understanding of the performance of the experimental platform while adding relatively large amount of data to the existing experiment database. High burnup experiments on irradiated metallic and MOX specimens will aid to expand the existing performance envelope of advanced designs to support current and future reactor design and optimization to maximize the performance potential of these already successful fuel types.
