NS SAVANNAH FUEL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. CORE 2 FUEL ASSEMBLIES NOS. 4 AND 5
Fuel assemblies #4 and #5, which are included in the N.S. Savannah Core 2 Fuel Irradiation Program, were modified to increase the experimental variables originally planned. In order to obtain as much information as possible from the irradiation of these assemblies the corner rods of Savannah 2-4 and -5 were opened, special pellets inserted, and a device for measuring the axial expansion of the fuel column into the plenum was incorporated. Hardware changes were necessary at this time. Segment assembly and final assembly are discussed.
