This report presents the estimated fuel concentration changes of total uranium, uranium-235 and total plutonium in the 32 partially expanded fuel elements through a series of graphs which give the concentration of these fuel materials as a function of core burnup. This manner of presentation simplifies the calculations and provides an estimate of these concentrations on a gram basis. An estimate of the daily, weekly, or cruise amount of U-235 burned, net plutonium produced or total uranium burned may also be determined through the use of these curves.
