H. Vacelet (CERCA), A. Languille (CEA), E. Le Borgne (Technicatome), JM. Hamy (Framatome), JL. Guillet (Cogema)


The first part of the UMo development program that has been launched in France is focused on full-sized plates fabrication and irradiation. Full sized plates with high densities of LEU have been manufactured by CERCA. This paper includes a presentation of the manufacturing results.

These plates are irradiated in two reactors: OSIRIS for the standard conditions, and HFR for severe conditions.

The irradiation in the OSIRIS reactor is nearly completed. The irradiation conditions are presented in this appear as well as the swelling measurement results.

The result of the two first cycle in the HFR reactor are given. The general planning of the development is discussed.
