Reactive Gas Reprocessing of Used Nuclear Fuel Simulants
CX(s) Applied: B3.6
Location(s): Aiken, South Carolina
Office(s): Savannah River Operations Office
Perform thermal analysis and thermal exposures using ThermoGravimetric Analysis (TGA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), and Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) which may also be coupled with residual gas analysis in addition to vacuum and flowing gas experiments to determine the effects of various gaseous species on simulated used nuclear fuel -- using only non-radiological simulants and simulants that are primarily oxides of the elements of interest.
