Fuel assembly for a nuclear reactor

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4671926.

A fuel assembly for a boiling water reactor has a bundle of fuel rods consisting of a top tie plate and a bottom part which, together with a plurality of fuel rods, constitutes a rigid unit. The fuel rod bundle is surrounded by a fuel channel (1), to which there is attached a fixing member (2) cast in stainless steel. The fixing member (2) is attached to a vertical projection (3), extending from the top tie plate, by means of a bolt (4) which is loaded with a tensile force and a sleeve (10) which is loaded with a compressive force and which surrounds the bolt and is arranged in the fixing member, the coefficients of thermal expansion of the bolt and the sleeve being less than that of the fixing member.
