Method for limiting the maintenance loads applied to a fuel assembly of a nuclear reactor and fuel assembly

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #7577229.

A resilient bush for frictionally engaging a centering pin of the fuel assembly is fixed in each of the through-holes of at least one of the end-pieces of the fuel assembly. The resilient bush comprises an annular member which has a portion for fixing in the hole of the end-piece and resilient arms which are separated by apertures. The flexible arms of the resilient bush comprise, in a free end portion, a supporting surface which projects radially inside the bush whose diameter is smaller than the diameter of a centering pin of the fuel assembly.
