Abstract: The Phébus FP project is an international project examining the release and behaviour of fission products from irradiated fuel. It is led and being carried out by the Institut de Radioprotection et de Sûreté Nuclèaire (IRSN) at Cadarache in collaboration with the European Commission and the EU national research institutes as well as USA, Canada, Korea, Japan and Switzerland [1,2]. ITU & PSI have undertaken the post irradiation examination (PIE) of the bundles. The first test FPT0 used trace irradiated fuel and acted as a reference. FPTI examined bundle degradation and release under steam atmospheres while FPT2 was carried out under steamlimited conditions. FPT3 was carried out with reduced steam flow conditions but also using a B4C absorber rod. The latter test is still undergoing examination.
