Title: FABRICATION OF URANIUM OXIDE FUEL ELEMENTS

Abstract

The fabrication of UO/sub 2/ fuel elements clad in metallic sheaths by swaging, rolling, and coextrusion was investigated. The effects of the type of UO/sub 2/ and of the materials and dimensions of the sheath were investigated. Fused UO/sub 2/ swaged in stairless-steel tubing reached a maximum density of 93% of theoretical. (auth)
