Post-reactor studies of structural elements made of E-635 alloy in VVER-1000 TVSA fuel assemblies have shown that with regard to the operating characteristics their service life was not exhausted during a six-year run and burnup to 72 MW·days/kg. It was confirmed that the performance of alloy E-635 in fuel-element cladding and accessory components of fuel assemblies is highly reliable. The geometric parameters, corrosion state and mechanical properties of parts made from this alloy did not reach values precluding further service.©2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

The conceptual principles of a long-term strategy for the development of large-scale nuclear power in Russia based on fast reactors with natural safety and a closed NFC, conservation of the natural radioactivity balance for buried wastes, prevention of proliferation of weapons-grade materials, drawing uranium resources fully into energy production and ensuring that the nuclear method of electricity production is competitive are examined. The principal problems of nuclear power are characterized and ways to solve them are proposed. Mathematical models are used to examine scenarios for the development of nuclear power and the transition to a closed NFC. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York. Source

The principal results from studies of the state of fuel elements with nitride fuel for subsequent work on use in fast reactors are reviewed. It is shown that fuel elements with nitride fuel and helium filler can secure serviceability to burnup, determined by the onset of kernel-cladding interaction. Nitride fuel in fuel elements with a liquid-metal contact layer is a promising variant for attaining deep burnup. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media New York. Source
