CANCELED-Leveraging modern characterization for a mechanistic understanding of advanced nuclear fuel performance
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
Tyler Gerczak Oak Ridge National Lab - An overview of the TRISO fuel form will be presented along with the specific examples of PIE observations informing fuel performance such as integral SiC layer failure behavior and fission product transport. The research framework established for TRISO fuels has applicability across other fuel forms. Along with the TRISO focus a brief extension towards LWR UO2 evolution including an understanding of the high burnup structure formation will be presented.
