Cermet fuel for fast reactor – Fabrication and characterization

This article studied the properties of two compositions of cermet fuels, U-15wt%UO2 and U-30wt%UO2. The thermal conductivity of the sintered cermets was determined by the transient plane source (TPS) technique using a Thermal Constant Analyzer. It was ...

Microstructural and thermophysical properties of U–6 wt.%Zr alloy for fast reactor application

Thermophysical properties of a uranium-6 wt. % zirconium alloy were investigated at high temperatures to evaluate the performance of the alloy as a driver fuel for a liquid-metal cooled fast reactor. Of particular interest to the authors were the coefficient of thermal expansion, the specific heat, ...

Transient plane source technique for measurement of thermal conductivity of U and T91 for fast reactor application 

Thermal conductivity is one of the most important properties of fuel and cladding material. In this study, the thermal conductivity of uranium and T91 steel were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of T91 increased gradually to ...
