Abstract:

The safety of in-core exposures of ROVERNERVA fuel to pulsed neutron irradiation has been analyzed. Exposure in a dry environment of fuel specimens containing one gram of U-235 to a TRIGA Mark F power transient following a three dollar step increase in reactivity was examined. These examinations indicate that expected tem peratures, pressures and radiation levels are well within required safety limits. Author
