This publication represents a summary and proceedings of two technical meetings on the subjects of 1) hot cell post-irradiation examination (PIE) techniques and poolside inspection of water reactor fuel assemblies, and 2) fuel rod instrumentation and in-pile measurement techniques. It provides an overview of the status of in-pile and post-irradiation techniques of water reactor fuel examination with an emphasis on experimental methods applied to high burnup fuel. Further important items addressed at these meetings were the information on progress achieved in non-destructive and destructive PIE techniques used for investigation of water reactor fuels, advanced PIE techniques such as 3-D tomography, as well as advanced in-pile measurement techniques for a better understanding of mechanisms of fuel behaviour under irradiation.
