MARITIME LOOP IRRADIATION PROGRAM FOR SAVANNAH 1 FUEL--PRE-IRRADIATION AND EXAMINATION OF NMSR-GETR TEST FUEL ASSEMBLIES 1 & 2
Two Savannah Core 1 test fuel assemblies, each containing nine fuel rods of a 3 x 3 rod array in a square configuration, were given pre-irradiation examinations. The fuel assemblies were proof-tested in the boiling water loop of a test reactor within defined loop parameters and irradiation conditions to approximate the N.S. Savannah reactor operations. Dimensional measurements of both fuel assemblies were performed for comparison with the five interim pool examinations, and the final post-irradiation examination.
