Objectives

To support Member States to understand and address factors affecting the design, fabrication and in-pile behaviour of currently operating and innovative nuclear fuels and materials for power reactors, to increase technology readiness for candidate ATF materials.

Specific objectives

To perform experimental tests including single rod and bundle tests on ATFs' performance under normal, DB and DE conditions

To benchmark fuel codes against new test data either obtained during the CRP or from existing data relevant to advanced fuel and cladding concepts from Member States' experimental Programmes.

To develop LOCA evaluation methodology for ATF performance with a view for NPP applications.
