Final Report - F-BRIDGE (Basic research for innovative fuels design for GEN IV systems)

Project ID: 211690


This is the final report of the F-BRIDGE project which received funding European Commission (EC) under the Euratom Programme within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to bridge the gap between basic research and technological applications for generation IV nuclear reactor systems.

One of the challenges for the next generation of reactors is to significantly increase the efficiency in designing innovative fuels. The main objective of the F-BRIDGE project was therefore to complement the classical empirical approach by a more physically-based description of fuel and cladding materials which is essential to reach a better knowledge, leading itself to a better selection of promising fuel systems.

The report covers the objectives and the work performed under three different domains. Namely, these are: the experimental simulation and modelling of fuels and SiC cladding from the atomic to the mesoscopic scale (Domain 1), the integration of all scales, transfer between technological issues and basic research (Domain 2), application to advanced sphere-pac fuel design (Domain 3).

The summary also includes information about education and training activities organised.
