Modeling the Cladding Leak Detection Shop of a Nuclear Reactor's Module
The cladding leak detection shop is part of an automated line of fuel assembly production. Leak control is based on heating the fuel element groups. While warming up, defective units eject the control gas, which is detected by a leak locator. The defected group is divided into two parts. Each part is screened in the same way until the leaking fuel element is found.
