Keywords:FFRD, fuel fragmentation, fuel dispersal, accumulation of fuel fragments, core coolability, high burnup fuel, LOCA

In order to study FFRD (Fuel Fragmentation, Relocation and Dispersal), we developed an out of pile experimental method that can simulate an accumulation of fuel fragments on the fuel grid and obtain the data concerning the effect of expelled fuel fragments to core coolability using PWR 3x3 fuel rod bundle system.
