Title: Production test IP-310-A-FP, determination of the dimensional stability of uranium fuel cores classified by the fuel core tester (UT-2)

Abstract

Since it is now possible to obtain a heat-treated U core that is randomly oriented and has a finer average grain size, it is necessary to irradiate measured, transformed fuel cores over the full range of grain sizes, in order to compare relative dimensional stabilities. An improved ultrasonic tester, Fuel Core Tester-UT-2, is used to test all fuel cores.
