IRRADIATION RESULTS, N.S. SAVANNAH CORE 2 PROTOTYPE FUEL ASSEMBLIES. (ASSEMBLIES SAV-2-2 AND SAV-2-3)

Two N. S. Savannah, second-core prototype, fuel elements were designed, fabricated, irradiated and destructively examined by the General Electric Company, Atomic Power Equipment Department. One stainless-steel clad, U02 pellet fuel element was irradiated to 1800 MWD/T at moderate heat fluxes followed by irradiation for 80 MWD/T at 350,000 Btu/hr ft sq. The other was irradiated to 100 MWD/T at 400,000 Btu/hr ft sq. Post-irradiation: dimensional measurement, Gamma survey, fission gas release, Fuel macro- and microstructure, burnup and cladding mechanical property data were determined for both elements.
