A kinetic study of the oxidation of uranium dioxide
- 121 Downloads
A kinetic model for the oxidation of a UO2 pellet is suggested by considering the mass transfer and the diffusion of oxygen molecules. The kinetic parameters were estimated by a fitting of the experimental data. The activation energies for the chemical reaction and the product layer diffusion were calculated from the kinetic model. The suggested model explains well the oxidation behavior of UO2.
