Title: METHOD OF FABRICATING TUBULAR UNITS

Abstract

A process is described for making a fuel element comprising a tubular jacket and fuel slugs held by the jacket in longitudinally spaced relation to one another. The jacket is lengthened as a result of being drawn down to grip the fuel slugs. As an intentional incident to this operation, the fuel slugs become longitudinally spaced from one another.
