Title: THE DETERMINATION OF URANIUM BURNUP IN MWD/TON

Abstract

The mass-spectrometric and radiochemical methods for the determination of burn-up in nuclear fuel are compared for reliability in the range of 5000 to 15,000 Mwd/ton. Neither appears to be clearly superior to the other. Each appears to have an uncertainty of approximately 6 to 8%. It is concluded that both methods of analysis should be employed where reliability is of great concern. Agreement between both methods is the best possible indication of reliable results. (auth)
