Abstract

The paper contains a brief description of the model for fission gas behavior and swelling in advanced LMFBR fuels ( mixed carbide, particularly ) which has been developed at Joint Research Centre of the European Communities in Karlsruhe. The model is based on mechanistic hypotheses on gas bubble formation and is therefore able to provide a detailed picture of the relevant macro- and microstructural modifications produced by swelling. An introduction to the computer program EUGES-ARIES, constructed to perform fuel performance calculations with this model, is given with thorough instructions for use. A listing of the program is attached.
