Final Activity Report - MTR+I3 (Integrated infrastructure initiatives for material testing reactors innovations)

Project ID: 36440


This is the final report of the MTR+I3 project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The aim of the project was to build durable cooperation between material testing reactor (MTR) operators and relevant laboratories that can maintain European leadership with up-dated capabilities and competences regarding reactor performances and irradiation technology. This report covers activities that foster integration of the MTR community involved in designing, fabricating and operating irradiation devices through information exchange, know-how cross-fertilisation, exchanges of interdisciplinary personnel, structuring of key-technology suppliers and professional training. The network produces best practice guidelines for selected irradiation activities. The report reveals that its major results are illustrated in this paper. These concern in particular: on-line fuel power determination, neutron screen optimisation, simulation of transmutation process, power transient systems, water chemistry and stress corrosion cracking, fission gas measurement, irradiation behaviour of electronic modules, mechanical loading under irradiation, high temperature gas loop technology, heavy liquid metal loop development, safety test instrumentation.
