TRISO coated particle fuel has been developed for the high temperature gas-cooled reactors, which consists of microspherical fuel kernel and coating layers of pyrolytic carbon and silicon carbide. To improve the high temperature stability, the resistance to the chemical attack by fission products and the retention of fission products of the TRISO coated particle fuels, several types of advanced fuels were proposed and tested. Coated particle fuels for fast reactors were also proposed and tested. In this paper, fuel designs, fabrications, characterization techniques and fuel performance of these advanced coated particle fuels are systematically described. This is the updated version of the paper having the same title in Comprehensive Nuclear Materials published in 2012.

In Japan, the research and development (R&D) project on accident tolerant fuel and other components (ATFs) of light water reactors (LWRs) has been initiated in 2015 for establishing technical basis of ATFs. The Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) has coordinated and carried out this ATF R&D project in cooperation with power plant providers, fuel venders and universities for making the best use of the experiences, knowledges in commercial uses of zirconium-base alloys (Zircaloy) in LWRs. ATF candidate materials under consideration in the project are FeCrAl steel strengthened by dispersion of fine oxide particles(FeCrAl-ODS) and silicon carbide (SiC) composite, and are expecting to endure severe accident conditions in the reactor core for a longer period of time than the Zircaloy while maintaining or improving fuel performance during normal operations. In this paper, the progresses of the R&D project are reported.

We have synthesized minute SiC products from polyvinylsilane (PVS), which is a liquid organosilicon polymer, with radiation curing. Since there is a close relationship between the properties of obtained SiC products and pyrolysis condition, it is important to investigate the ceramization process of PVS in order to find out the optimum pyrolysis condition. In this paper, the ceramization process of the PVS cured by -ray irradiation at room temperature was investigated by gas analysis, thermogravimetric analysis, density measurement, and so on. It was found that the ceramization of -ray cured PVS starts above 500K, and that drastic organic-inorganic conversion occurs in the temperature range of 700-1100K. According to the results of the changes of mass and density, it was found that the volume shrinkage of PVS during the curing and pyrolysis processes is 80%. The SiC obtained by pyrolysis at 1573K showed the density of 2.50g/cm and microvickers hardness of 31.6GPa.

Irradiation effect of -ray on polyvinylsilane (PVS), which is a liquid organosilicon polymer, was investigated and the optimum curing condition to synthesize a minute SiC product with radiation curing was discussed. Room temperature and liquid nitrogen temperature (77K) were examined as the irradiation temperature. In both cases, the cured PVS maintaining its formed shape could be obtained by -ray irradiation under vacuum, and the cured PVS in solid state at room temperature was obtained by irradiation with dose of above 3-4MGy. It was found that the efficiency of crosslinking in case of the irradiation at room temperature is higher than that in case of irradiation at 77K. The PVS injected into a mold was irradiated by -ray with dose of 3.6MGy at room temperature under vacuum, and pyrolyzed at 1273 K in Ar gas atmosphere. As a result, minute SiC products which had similar shapes to the mold and the sizes of 30-60m were obtained.
