Radial Distributions of Power and Isotopic Concentrations in Candidate Accident Tolerant Fuel U3Si2 and UO2/U3Si2 Fuel Pins with FeCrAl Cladding

18 Oct 2018 Chen Shengli Yuan Cenxi Guo Daxi

Monte Carlo simulations show similarity on radial distributions of power and isotopic concentrations at any effective full power depletion time among five kinds of fuel-cladding combinations with the same cycle length, including the normal UO2-zircaloy combination, the candidate Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF) UO2/U3Si2-FeCrAl combination, and three kinds of candidate ATF U3Si2-FeCrAl combinations. An analytical formula f(x,s) including the fuel exposure (s) and the relative radial (x) is proposed to describe the radial properties for all five kinds of fuel-cladding combinations... (read more)
