    Abstract

    Swelling behavior has been evaluated for irradiated 20% CW 316 Stainless Steel used as cladding material for mixed-oxide fuel pins in EBR-II. This behavior has been compared statistically with the behavior of a large number of specimens which were irradiated without adjacent fuel in the same reactor. In spite of the chemical environment and stresses experienced by fueled cladding, the fueled and nonfueled cladding appear to behave in a similar manner although some divergence was noted for one of the cases studied.
