The nuclear fuel assemblies include numerous components made of different materials (alloys for structure and ceramics for fuel itself). For the purposes of efficiency and error prevention a computer-aided verification of nuclear fuel quality data shall be developed. The first part of the code has been developed and this shall be improved and extended by two further modules working with data from the fuel deliveries for the nuclear power plants Leibstadt and Beznau. The platform and shape are existing but can be adapted and are waiting for the applicant’s creativity. During the internship we plan for a visit at a nuclear fuel fabrication facility.
