3. DESCRIPTION

Fuel Assembly (FA) No.E0325 was operated in the first unit of Zaporozskaya NPP (Ukraine) during the fuel cycles 4-8 (VVER-1000). It was irradiated for 1142.1 effective days, to a burnup of 48.9 MWd/kgU on average for the whole FA and of 51.3 MWd/kgU in the "hottest" fuel rod. The maximum local linear power in a fuel rod was 290 W/cm. The average linear power for the whole operational period of FA varied within the limits of 71-266 W/cm. The operational conditions of FA corresponded to the four-years fuel cycle, both on duration of the operation and burnup of the fuel. After the base irradiation, the FA N. E-0325 was subjected to PIE in the hot cells of SSC NIIAR (Russian Federation).

The following information is provided:

- Pre-characterization data:
Fuel Pellet Material: UO2 and chemical analyses, Uranium isotopic composition U235, 4.4 wt%, Grain size: 3.4 - 5.8 micron
Cladding Material: Zr-1%Nb
Rod parameters: Total length: 3837 [+2.0, -2.0] mm, Fill gas, pressure: He, 2.0-2.5 Mpa, Fuel assembly length: 4570 [+1.0, -1.0] mm
