Abstract

This collection has been selected by a sub-group of the Neutron Radiography Working Group (NRWG) + constituted by experts from nuclear research centres within the European Community. The text is in English and French. It contains 158 radiographs on film (which can be removed for comparative viewing) of light water and fast reactor fuel rods. Also included are double enlargement prints of each radiograph. The radiographs are arranged in accordance with a classification system, which lists the components of the fuel and cladding and illustrates defects in each which can be revealed by neutron radiography. Introductory chapters describe the classification system in relation to a typical fuel pin and explain how to identify defects and use the collection. All the terms used in the classification together with additional useful terms are listed with their equivalents in six languages + Danish, Dutch, English, French, German and Italian. A final section lists the main technical data and addresses of neutron radiography installations in the European Community.
