Title: CONCENTRIC TUBE FUEL ELEMENT SPRING ALIGNMENT SPACER DEVICE

Abstract

A rib construction for a nuclear-fuel element is described, in which one of three peripherally spaced ribs adjacent to each end of the fuel element is mounted on a radially yielding spring that embraces the fuel element. This spring enables the fuel element to have a good fit with a coolant tube and yet to be easily inserted in and withdrawn from the tube. (AEC)
