Title: Inspection of assembled LWBR fuel rods for internal dimensions and pellet integrity utilizing in-motion radiography (LWBR development program)

Abstract

In-motion radiography was utilized in the LWBR Fuel Rod Manufacturing program for assurance of pellet quality, internal dimensions on all rod types, and for loading assurance in binary rods. The major development effort was concentrated in the area of exposure parameters and special fixturing. Development also focused on special gages which provide for loading assurance and dimensions from in-motion film. Construction and operation of the In-Motion X-Ray Unit and the special gages are described.
