Title: Milestone Report: Calculate parameters controlling grain growth in doped UO 2 [M3MS-18LA0201035]

Abstract

The safe and efficient operation of nuclear reactors depends upon accurate fuel performance modeling. By understanding the underlying mechanisms that govern fuel properties fuel performance codes can be improved and new fuels can be developed. Additives have been added to UO 2 during sintering to increase grain size with the aim of reducing fission gas release and increasing pellet plasticity.
