Title: JACKETED FISSIONABLE MEMBER

Abstract

A fuel element design for a nuclear reactor is presented. The fuel element comprises a cylindrical fuel body having a portion of smaller diameter at each end thereof with an annular flange at the extreme ends of these portions of smaller diameter. An end cap fits over the ends of the fuel body and has an internal annular groove adapted to receive the flange. The fuel body and end caps are disposed in a cup-shaped jacket, a closure disc completing the enclosure of the fuel body, and tht caps are bonded over their entire periphery to the jacket.
