For example, "World war II" (with quotes) will give more precise results than World war II (without quotes). Wildcard Searching If you want to search for multiple variations of a word, you can substitute a special symbol (called a "wildcard") for one or more letters. COVID Resources.

NUREG/CR PNNL Material Property Correlations: Comparisons between FRAPCON, FRAPTRAN , and MATPRO. Manuscript Completed: August In order to extend FRAPCON, a dry storage creep law of comparable accuracy to others in the open literature, but simpler and dependent on fewer parameters, has been derived. The proposed FRAPCON extension has been tested against realistic postulated scenarios of a Cited by: 6.

VTT versions of the fuel performance codes FRAPCON and FRAPTRAN / Syrjälahti, Elina; Ikonen, Timo. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, 16 p. (VTT Research Report, Vol. VTT-R). Research output: Book/Report › ReportAuthor: Elina Syrjälahti, Timo Ikonen. FRAPCON-3 is a descendent of FRAPCON-2, version In comparison with this older version of the code, FRAPCON-3 has a simpler structure and extended capability to model high burnup fuel rods; FRAPCON-3 has been assessed and validated with respect to experimental data from 45 fuel rods, covering rod average burnups up to The temperature calculated by FRAPCON is mapped to NUFORM3D using third-degree polynomial curve fitting with the least square fitting method. Even though swelling, densification of pellet and creep strain of cladding calculated by FRAPCON are one dimension results, those strains are Cited by: 3.
