ABSTRACT

The fission product isotopic inventories have been estimated for a 90.2% highly enriched uranium (HEU) fuel lattice cell of the Ghana Research Reactor-1 (GHARR-1) using the WIMSD/4 transport lattice code. The results indicate a gradual decrease in the Xe135 inventory, and saturation trend for Sm149, Cs134 and Cs135 inventories as the fuel is depleted to 10,000 MWd/tU.
