In nuclear power plants (NPPs), fuel assemblies must withstand solicitations like hydraulic forces, wear, vibrations and fretting in normal operation as well as dynamic loads during abnormal situations like earthquake or a loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA).


AREVA NP proposes a wide variety of test facilities and competencies applied to hydraulics, mechanics or wear.
Tests are related to design qualification, mechanical properties characterization and life time justification of fuel assembly components and provide input data for hydraulic and mechanical calculations.
