Objectives

The FAIRFUELS project aims at:

  • Fabricating dedicated fuels containing minor actinides
  • Irradiating these fuels in the High-Flux Reactor in Petten
  • Examining these irradiated samples and gathering all experimental information on their behaviour during irradiation
  • Developing representative models and calibrating them with experimental data

The main phenomenon to be understood is the behaviour of helium gas, which is formed abundantly during transmutation and is responsible for most of the irradiation damage.

FAIRFUELS partners will gather a fruitful experience on all steps (from theory to irradiation through fabrication processes) which will reveal crucial for the development of new generation nuclear concepts.
