Title: Transient Testing of Nuclear Fuels Performed in the Original Operation of TREAT, First Edition

Abstract

This report provides summary information on a selected set of key historic experiment series which were performed in the Transient Reactor Test Facility (TREAT) during its original operation from 1959-1994. The selected experiments are intended to illustrate the diversity in experiments which have been performed, and the range in capabilities of the TREAT reactor. Knowledge of those prior experiments provides a foundation for qualification and safety evaluation of numerous fuel forms already tested in TREAT, planning and designing new future tests, and for future TREAT operation.
