Fuel assembly for a boiling water reactor










Image Number 4 for United States Patent #5483565.

A fuel assembly (16) for a boiling-water nuclear reactor arranged in groups with four fuel assemblies in each group and with a centrally placed control rod (17) forming a supercell. Each fuel assembly (16) includes a plurality of vertical fuel rods (12) with enriched nuclear fuel material (24), said rods being arranged between a bottom tie plate (13) and a top tie plate (14) in a surrounding vertical fuel channel (1) which is connected to a transition section (2). The transition section is provided with holes (20a-d) for by-pass flow outside the fuel assembly. The fuel assembly is characterized in that the by-pass holes are arranged in such a way that when turning the fuel assembly (16), including the transition section (2), 90.degree., 180.degree. or 270.degree. around the longitudinal axis of the fuel assembly, said holes are adapted to direct the by-pass flow away from the control rod (17).
