ABSTRACT

This paper summarizes the conversion status of research and test reactors in the United States from the use of fuels containing highly-enriched uranium (HEU,= or > 20%) to the use of fuels containing low-enriched uranium (LEU, < 20%). Estimates of the uranium densities required for the conversion are made for reactors with power levels of 1 MW or more that are not currently involved in the LEU conversion process.
