      Kazimi, Mujid S.; Hejzlar, Pavel; Ballinger, Ronald G.; Carpenter, David M.; Feng, Dandong; e.a. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 2003-08)
      The overall objective of this NERI project is to examine the potential for a high performance advanced fuel design for Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs), which would accommodate a substantial increase of core power density ...
    • High Performance Fuel Design for Next Generation PWRs Appendices B-I to FY-02 Annual Report 

      Kazimi, Mujid S.; Hejzlar, Pavel; Ballinger, Ronald G.; Carpenter, David M.; Feng, Dandong; e.a. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 2003-08)
      B.1.1 VIPRE modeling of PWR core with annular fuel: Optimization studies in the first year used an isolated channel and models for MDNBR analyses. These analyses provided sufficient knowledge of potential thermal hydraulic ...
    • MODELING THE PERFORMANCE OF HIGH BURNUP THORIA AND URANIA PWR FUEL 

      Long, Y.; Kazimi, Mujid S.; Ballinger, Ronald G.; Meyer, J. E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 2002-07)
      Fuel performance models have been developed to assess the performance of ThO[subscript 2]-UO[subscript 2] fuels that can be operated to a high burnup up to 80-100MWd/kgHM in current and future Light Water Reactors (LWRs). ...
    • PROLIFERATION RESISTANT, LOW COST, THORIA-URANIA FUEL FOR LIGHT WATER REACTORS 

      Kazimi, Mujid S.; Driscoll, Michael J.; Ballinger, Ronald G.; Clarno, K. T.; Czerwinski, Kenneth R.; e.a. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. Nuclear Fuel Cycle Program, 1999-06-01)
      1. Summary Project Objectives: Our objective is to develop a fuel consisting of mixed thorium dioxide and uranium dioxide (ThO[subscript 2]-UO[subscript 2]) for existing light water reactors (LWRs) that (a) is less ...
