frames of Russian RERTR Program were post-irradiation
examinations of 12 types of disperse (U-Mo)-based fuel
compositions in Al matrix. The goal of the work was to
substantiate serviceability of the new fuel compositions
being developed for utilization in Russian-built
pool-type research reactors. Among the methods of PIE
used in this work were visual examination,
gamma-scanning, optical metallography, SEM, X-ray
analysis and some others.
The present paper is dedicated to an analysis of the main results of PIE completed so far. Special attention has been paid to the parameters affecting formation of interaction layer between fuel granules and matrix Al.
