Title: Development Plan for the MOX Fuel Fabrication Process

Abstract

The Advanced Fuel Campaign (AFC) in Fuel Cycle Research and Development (FCRD) has tasks of near term Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF) for light water reactor (LWR) and long term advanced reactor fuel research and development. Mixed Oxide (MOX) is one of the options for the advanced reactor fuel and development plan for the fabrication and characterization of MOX is described. The efforts will include the confirmation of the MOX fabrication capability and development of processing parameters for the stable fabrication of MOX fuel to support future MOX work if the need arises from the program. Establishing a robust fabrication process of desired stoichiometry utilizing the fabrication equipment recently added to Fuel Manufacturing Facility (FMF) glove box sintering furnace would be the main goal of the development.
