Abstract : The report is divided into two sections. The first section gives a detailed review of uranium and its alloys dealing with their physical, mechanical, and chemical properties important to nuclear reactors. The second section discusses the main properties of the following types of ceramic fuels: The first group includes ceramics produced on the basis of oxides of uranium, thorium and plutonium both separately and in mixtures, and also mixed with other oxides containing no fissionable isotopes; and the second group includes nonoxide ceramic materials: carbides, nitrides, sulfides, phosphides and other compounds of uranium, thorium and plutonium (separately or mixed together, and also mixed with other compounds not containing fissionable isotopes).
