Description/Abstract:
A UO2 FUEL ELEMENT, AFTER A ONE CYCLE IRRADIATION IN THE MTR, WILL BE REJUVENATED WITH PU-AL WIRE AND RETURNED TO THE MTR FOR ANOTHER CYCLE. IF SUCCESSFUL, THE REJUVENATION OF FUEL ELEMENTS WILL EXTENDTHE USEFULNESS OF THE INDIVIDUAL FUEL ELEMENTS AND REDUCE THE COST OF OUTPUT POWER.
