Title: BICM-2 instrumented neutron absorber experiment

Abstract

The BICM-2 Experiment yielded gas release, swelling pellet integrity, and tritium retention data for boron carbide and europium oxide operating at high temperatures. In addition, it provided information regarding the manner in which pins placed above-the-core performed and a continuous evaluation of in-core vent devices.
