Paper Abstract

X-ray cinematography has been used for monitoring fuel motion in the out-of-pile fuel pin joule melting experiments for nuclear, liquid metal cooled fast breeder reactor, safety studies related to fuel pin failure, initial fuel motion and thermal fuel-coolant interaction (FCI) of the hypothetical core distractive accident. In order to visually observe the nuclear fuel motion, the X-ray cinematography system consists of an X-ray source located about 5 cm from the test section and an image intenfifier located at a corresponding position on the opposite side of the test section. The image from the image intensifier has been recorded both with a high speed camera and video recorder.
