Expert Group on Accident-tolerant Fuels for LWRs (EGATFL) Meetings and Workshops

Under the guidance of the Nuclear Science Committee (NSC), the expert group primarily acted as a forum for scientific and technical information exchange on advanced light water reactor (LWR) fuels with enhanced accident tolerance. The expert group focused on the fundamental properties and behaviour under normal operations and accident conditions for advanced core materials and components (fuels, cladding, control rods, etc.). The materials considered were applicable to Gen II and Gen III Light Water Reactors, as well as Gen III+ reactors under construction.
