Title: Production test authorization: 011 HDS and ALSI fuel performance monitoring

Abstract

Much useful information has been gained from this program, leading to improvements and additions to non-destructive testing equipment, improved fuel quality, and a generally better understanding of fuel performance. The original objectives of the program have been met -- at least to the extent that such information can now be effectively used. However, other aspects of the program have a continuing value. Visual examination and dimensional data obtained routinely on production fuels have been a useful tool as a monitor of reactor conditions and trends, and of fuel quality. This test authorization proposes to continue a PT-216 type of program, modified to better serve today`s needs.
