NS SAVANNAH FUEL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. REFUELING TESTS, PART 2
Observations, measurements, and recommendations pertinent to the N.S. Savannah Core 2 fuel assembly are a result of refueling tests of prototype fuel assemblies, reactor internals, and related equipment. Tests were made to determine sub-assembly integration of manufactured items in the Savannah reactor. Following initial fuel assembly inspection, the fuel bundle and upper transition assembly were placed in each of the 32 fuel containers to ascertain dimension variances. Refueling tests determined the compatibility of the fuel assembly with handling equipment and procedures. Equipment change recommendations are given for the fuel bundle, transition assembly, and control rod guide blocks.
