Test 022 comprised three UO-Zr test fuel pins which were irradiated in the DR 3 reactor at Rise at 7.2 MPa (70 ato) system pressure. A burnup of approximately 3530 GJAg U (36,000 MWD/te UO2) was accumulated at heat loads in the range 35 to 53 kW/m (350 to 530 W/cm) (test avg. values). Fission gas analysis for two of the
pins showed that the releases were 49 and 36%. The experimental data are presented in sufficient detail for use in the validation of fuel performance codes.
