Title: NEUTRONIC REACTOR FUEL ELEMENT AND METHOD OF MANUFACTURE

Abstract

BS>A uranium body for use in a nuclear fission reactor is described. It has a homogeneous rod of uranium metal enclosed in an envelope of aluminum, wherein a thin metallic layer of higher melting point than aluminum and of relatively low competitive neutron absorption between the uranium and the aluminum is bonded to the uranium and to the aluminum of the sheath.
