Abstract

The modified computer code MACROS was used to study the behavior of fuel elements with vibrationally compacted mixed fuel under irradiation in BN-800. Verification calculations were performed for fuel elements irradiated in BN-600 under close to nominal conditions. Attention was focused mainly on the factors playing an important role in their serviceability: swelling, creep, corrosion behavior of cladding, temperature distribution, gas-release, and degree of structural reformation of the fuel core.
