The modelling of the performance of nuclear fuel is crucial to the operation of nuclear power plants and comprises a key component of the demonstration of nuclear safety. As the demands on fuel performance increase, fuel modelling codes need to develop and cover a wider range of operational and transient conditions. This publication compares the predictions of current fuel modelling codes with data representing a wide range of fuel operational conditions. The results demonstrate both excellent performance and areas for further development of the codes to support advanced fuel operations.
