THE FABRICATION AND IRRADIATION TESTING OF DISPERSION-TYPE BEO-UO SUB 2 CERAMIC FUEL MATERIALS

Considerations affecting the design of dispersion-type ceramic fuel materials are discussed. The results of measurements made to study the effect of fuel loading on the properties of the fuel bodies and the results of irradiation tests of fuel pellets composed of 20 vol % UO sub 2 dispersed in BeO are presented. Experience in the fabrication of dispersion-type BeO-UO sub 2 ceramic fuel materials is described. From the results obtained, it is believed that BeO-UO sub 2 fuel materials of the type studied will exhibit satisfactory performance in the Experimental Beryllium Oxide Reactor.(Author)
