HTR fuel technology

Objective

The present Cost Shared Action is partly the following of the INNOHTR CSA carried out in the frame of the 4th FP. Its main objective is to investigate the characteristics of the HTRGR fuels. First of all but we have to recover this experience acquired in the past on HTR fuels. The particular design based on fuel coated particles that ensure leak tightness to the fission products needs to master a high quality of fabrication fuel. So it is necessary to restart the activities on fabrication in order to improve later on the coated fuel technology Concerning the fuel performance under irradiation it is needed to assess the temperature limit of operation of such fuel particles in particular in the case of higher burn-ups to be investigated. This better understanding of fuel can be met by fuel modelling but also by performance of an irradiation and PIE programme.
