WP5: Fuel safety

Objectives:

Transient testing of MYRRHA fuel for the determination of the pin failure threshold.

  • Test methodology development and simulation of transient fuel behaviour.
  • Design and fabrication of fuel elements and irradiation device.
  • Transient tests on uranium oxide (capsule design and measurement chain validation) and MOX fuel.
  • Investigation of fuel-coolant and fuel-coolant-clad interactions up to 1700°C
  • Conceptual design for an experiment related to severe accident analysis of MYRRHA type fuel in the IGR reactor at NNC
