Title: Modeling RERTR experimental fuel plates using the plate code.

Abstract

Modeling results using the PLATE dispersion fuel performance code are presented for the U-Mo/Al experimental fuel plates from the RERTR-1, ?2, -3 and -5 irradiation tests. Agreement of the calculations with experimental data obtained in postirradiation examinations of these fuels, where available, is shown to be good. Use of the code to perform a series of parametric evaluations highlights the sensitivity of U-Mo dispersion fuel performance to fabrication variables, especially fuel particle shape and size distributions.
