​​​​​​FUEL FABRICATION, IRRADIATION, CHARACTERIZATION,​ POST IRRADIATION EXAMINATION, PROCESS DEVELOPMENT​​


FASB.png​​The Fuels and Applied Science Building (FASB) is a radiological facility that has broad capability in fuel fabrication and characterization in support of nuclear energy research and development. The most recent addition to FASB is the irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) hot cells. This addition supports several program customers through the Department of Energy's Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) program to perform crack-growth-rate measurements on irradiated structural materials to support light water reactor life extension.

 

Basic Capabilities:

  • Uranium fuel development at all enrichments

  • Materials characterization

  • IASCC testing of irradiated materials

  • Multiple uranium gloveboxes to support fuel development

  • Cobalt-60 gamma irradiator with a radiolysis/hydrolysis test loop
