A reference flow sheet is the one of the first planning steps in the development of a manufacturing capacity for low enriched uranium foil fuels and can be used to develop a work structure, a critical path schedule and identify development needs. The reference flow sheet presented is specific to the High Flux Isotope Reactor and is used to estimate the change in HFIR operating cost due to fuel conversion.
