The thermophysical properties of inert matrix fuels (IMF) for actinide transmutation were discussed. The heat capacity, thermal diffusivity and conductivity were found to be measured in the usable temperature range for MgO- and ZrO2- based IMFs containing uranium, plutonium and americium. The comparison of thermal transport properties of a set of IMFs was also presented.

Abstract

The thermophysical properties of inert matrix fuels (IMF) for actinide transmutation were discussed. The heat capacity, thermal diffusivity and conductivity were found to be measured in the usable temperature range for MgO- and ZrO2- based IMFs containing uranium, plutonium and americium. The comparison of thermal transport properties of a set of IMFs was also presented.
