Title (EN) FUEL ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE COMBUSTIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Nuclear fuel assemblies (710) include non-symmetrical fuel elements (730) with reduced lateral dimensions on their outer lateral sides that facilitate fitting the fuel assembly (710) into the predefined envelope size and guide tube position and pattern of a conventional nuclear reactor. Nuclear fuel assemblies (910) alternatively comprise a mixed grid pattern that positions generally similar fuel elements (920) in a compact arrangement that facilitates fitting of the assembly (910) into the conventional nuclear reactor.
(FR)L'invention concerne des ensembles combustibles nucléaires (710), qui comprennent des éléments de combustible non-symétrique (730) ayant des dimensions latérales réduites sur leurs côtés latéraux extérieurs, qui facilitent l'ajustement de l'ensemble combustible (710) à la dimension d'enveloppe prédéfinie et guident une position et un modèle de tube d'un réacteur nucléaire classique. Sinon, des ensembles combustibles nucléaires (910) comprennent un modèle de grille mixte qui positionne de façon générale des éléments de combustible (920) similaires dans un agencement compact qui facilite l'ajustement de l'ensemble (910) au réacteur nucléaire classique.
