Title: FUEL CORE TESTER - UT-2

Abstract

An instrument that nondestructively tests uranium-fuelelement cores by ultrasonic methods is described. Because fuel cores containing untransformed uranium (or certain other variations in grain size) may fail in service, these should be rejected. The UT-2 is designed to automatically reject the cores that show undesirable variations in grain size. A second ultrasonic test is incorporated in the UT-2; this tests for surface defects and internal cracks and rejects the defective cores. (auth)
