Abstract

The present work reports on x-ray and gamma-ray high-spatial resolution computerized tomography measurements of the Pin Bundle Metallic Fuel Relocation (PBR) assemblies tested in the Metallic Uranium Safety Experiment (MUSE) facility at Argonne National Lab (ANL). The aim of the study was to characterize fuel relocation structures that develop during severe core accidents pertaining to SFR assemblies; these include but are not limited to advanced core disruption recreated in the PBR-1 assembly,
