3. DESCRIPTION

It contains data from experiments that have been performed at the IFE/OECD Halden Reactor  Project, available for use in fuel performance studies. It covers experiments on thermal performance, fission product release,  clad properties and pellet clad mechanical interaction. It includes also experimental data relevant to high burn-up behaviour.
IFA-432: Measurements of fuel temperature response, fission gas release and mechanical interaction on BWR-type fuel rods up to high  burn-ups. The assembly featured several variations in rod design parameters, including fuel type, fuel/cladding gap size, fill gas composition (He and Xe) and fuel stability. It contained 6 BWR-type  fuel rods with fuel centre thermocouples at two horizontal planes, rods were also equipped with pressure transducers and cladding extensometers. Only data from 6 rods are compiled here.
