Abstract: New thermal diffusivity results obtained on SBR MOX fuel with a pellet burn-up of 35 MWd/kgHM are reported. The thermal diffusivity measurements were carried out at three radial positions using a shielded "laser-flash" device and show that the thermal diffusivity increases from the pellet periphery to the centre. Comparison shows that the thermal conductivity is in the same range than of UO2 of similar burn-up. The annealing behaviour was characterized in order to identify the degradation due to the out-of pile auto-irradiation.
