The Temperature Field of Dispersion Nuclear Fuel Elements
A representative volume element is chosen to act as the research object to analyze the temperature field of the dispersion fuel elements. The thermal analysis is carried out for the thermal behaviors using FEM. The results indicate that with the volume fraction and the heat generation rate of the fuel particles increasing, the temperature and the gradient of the temperature in the matrix and the cladding increases markedly.
