Physical modelling and separate effect experiments for fuels


Coordinated by Marjorie Bertolus, CEA (FR)

The safety assessment of nuclear fuel requires a deep knowledge of the material properties of the fuel, and an even deeper understanding of the multitude of phenomena occurring during irradiation. These conditions are already severe under normal conditions, but become even more acerbated during transients or severe accidents. The focus of the efforts lies in fast reactor fuels as selected for the SFR, LFR, GFR and ADS fast neutron reactor systems as outlined by SNETP and ESNII.
