Current trends in fuel development and future needs in extended burnup Academic Article uri icon


  • In this paper, the status of fuel development programs for light water commercial reactors is reviewed. New fuel designs for extended burnup fuel cycles are considered along with the current emphasis on increasing the reliability of commercial fuel. The needs for fuel performance modeling in support of extended burnup and higher reliability are summarized. 1987.
