HTR fuel irradiation experiments at IVV-2M, HFR, R2, AVR and Dragon reactors

  1. Jan 15, 2008 #1
    I understand the sensitivity and confidentiality of some of this data.

    Its so difficult to archive or access data for this experiments (coated particle and pebble irradiations at material testing reactors: IVV-2M, R2, HFR, AVR, Dragon etc.) as well as the current irradiation programs, SIROCCO, the SILOE irradiations.

    I would also love to reference on the types of rigs they using for coated particle and pebble irradiations.

    Is there a way, some references hidden in the literature.

    Please help

    Data/reports from government sponsored programs are usually available, however, much modern work is often proprietary to commercial organziations who sponsor or co-sponsor the programs. The older reports may not be available in electronic format, and government organizations may not have funds to do that, but if one knows the right people, there are probably surplus reports available, that is, if they have not been destroyed.

    These might help one get started -
