Title (EN) FULLY CERAMIC MICROENCAPSULATED FUEL FABRICATED WITH BURNABLE POISON AS SINTERING AID
(FR) COMBUSTIBLE MICROENCAPSULÉ ENTIÈREMENT CÉRAMIQUE FABRIQUÉ À L'AIDE D'UN POISON BRÛLABLE UTILISÉ COMME AIDE AU FRITTAGE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A methodology is disclosed for compaction of a ceramic matrix of certain nuclear fuels incorporating neutron poisons, whereby those poisons aid in reactor control while aiding in fuel fabrication. Neutronic poisons are rare-earth oxides that readily form eutectics suppressing fuel fabrication temperature, of particular importance to the fully ceramic microencapsulated fuel form and fuel forms with volatile species.
(FR)L'invention concerne une méthodologie pour le compactage d'une matrice céramique de certains combustibles nucléaires incorporant des poisons neutroniques, lesdits poisons aidant au contrôle de réacteurs tout en aidant à la fabrication de combustible. Les poisons neutroniques sont des oxydes de terres rares qui forment aisément des eutectiques neutralisant la température de fabrication du combustible, ce qui a une importance particulière pour la forme de combustible microencapsulé entièrement céramique et des formes de combustible avec des espèces volatiles.
