Abstract: The safety of nuclear fuel during its operation in nuclear reactors and as spent fuel after irradiation is a major component of the research programmes carried out at JRC-ITU. A broad spectrum of activities is dedicated to the study of properties and behaviour of nuclear fuel compounds under normal and off-normal conditions, including severe accident scenarios characterized by fuel rod degradation, core meltdown and radionuclides release. Safety relevant aspects associated with spent fuel treatment after discharge from the reactor, during storage in the reactor pools and in dry facilities, and for its final disposal in a geologic repository are also studied.
