  1. 1. Open porosity fission gas release model applied to nuclear fuels

    Författare :Antoine Claisse; Pär Olsson; Arndt Schubert; KTH; []

    Sammanfattning : Nitride fuels have gained a new interest in the last few years as both a candidate for GEN IV reactors and as accident tolerant fuels for current light water reactors. They however are decades behind oxide fuels when it comes to qualication and development of tools to assess their performances. In this thesis, such a tool is developed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies of Nuclear Fuel Performance Using On-site Gamma-ray Spectroscopy and In-pile Measurements

    Författare :Ingvar Matsson; Anders Bäcklin; Ane Håkansson; Björn Grapengiesser; Riitta Kyrky-Rajamäki; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Nuclear physics; fission gas release; nuclear fuel; core physics; gamma-ray spectroscopy; LOKET; thermal power; burnup; fuel failure; validation; cladding; Kärnfysik;

    Sammanfattning : Presently there is a clear trend of increasing demands on in-pile performance of nuclear fuel. Higher target burnups, part length rods and various fuel additives are some examples of this trend. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Nondestructive Fission Gas Measurements by Means of Gamma Spectroscopy and Gamma Tomography

    Författare :Scott Holcombe; Staffan Jacobsson Svärd; Guido Ledergerber; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysik med inriktning mot tillämpad kärnfysik; Physics with specialization in Applied Nuclear Physics;

    Sammanfattning : There is a continuous need in the nuclear industry to characterize irradiated nuclear fuel rods and assemblies, both for fuel performance and for safeguards purposes, and consequently there are various destructive and nondestructive measurement techniques available to meet this need. Gamma spectroscopy is one such nondestructive technique, which has been extensively used for a variety of fuel characterization applications. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Spectroscopy along Decay Chains of Element 114, Flerovium

    Författare :Anton Såmark-Roth; Kärnfysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Superheavy elements; Flerovium; Nuclear Structure; Spectroscopy; Alpha decay; Electromagnetic decay; Spontaneous fission; Germanium detectors; Fysicumarkivet A:2021:Såmark-Roth;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focusses on a nuclear spectroscopy experiment conducted to study α-decay chains stemming from isotopes of flerovium (element Z = 114). An upgraded TASISpec decay station was placed behind the gas-filled separator TASCA at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, Germany. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Studies of Nuclear fuel by means of Nuclear Spectroscopy Methods

    Författare :Peter Jansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik;

    Sammanfattning : This paper which is a thesis for the title teknologie licentiat is a summary text of several works performed by the author regarding spectroscopic measurements on spent nuclear fuel. Methods for determining the decay heat of spent nuclear fuel by means of gammaray spectroscopy and for verifying the integrity of nuclear fuel by means of tomography is presented. LÄS MER
