Paper Title:
Influence of the Microstructure on the U1-yAmyO2-x (y= 0.1; 0.15) Pellet Macroscopic Swelling
  Abstract

This work is devoted to the study of the geometrical stability in time of UyAm1-yO2-x pellet due to self-irradiation at room temperature. Dense and tailored porosity U1-yAmyO2-x (y=0.10; 0.15) compounds were fabricated by a powder metallurgy process. Up to 3.4.1017 α particles/g, an increase in the diameter of 0.9% was observed for the dense compounds while for the tailored porosity material a diameter increase of 0.4% was observed. Swelling laws have been established from the experimental data.
