Calculation studies are carried out to substantiate the WWR-K reactor conversion to low-enriched fuel (≤20%). Calculations support possibility to create in the WWR-K reactor core the conditions required for testing pilot FAs. Appropriate heat-hydraulic calculations are performed. Real operation cycles needed to achieve the average 60-% burnup are found with the computer code MCU-REA . The determined reactor core characteristics show that the fuel test won’t be an obstacle for other irradiation activities.
(*) Work was carried out with financial support from NTI.
