3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

M501 is a MOX fuel assembly manufactured by BNFL and irradiated for three annual cycles in NOK's Beznau-1 PWR during the period 1994 to 1997. A subset of rods from the assembly were specially pre-characterised prior to loading, then taken for detailed PIE at the ITU hotcells after irradiation. One of these rods is Rod D10, a high plutonium content rod which achieved a burnup of around 35 MWd/kgHM. This data package contains all
relevant details of the pre-characterisation, irradiation, and PIE of Rod D10, with a focus on providing the information required for analysis by a fuel rod performance code.

Further background information on the M501 irradiation and PIE programme is available from the open literature publications [1] to [7].
