Abstract: The explosions at Fukushima were the direct result of interactions between water and the Zr cladding on the fuel that led to the production of hydrogen gas at high temperature. A large research effort to develop accident tolerant fuels for use in light water reactors has been undertaken to attempt to develop fuels that are safer under accident conditions. Our research group has looked at potential claddings such as ZrC, ZrN, and SiC.
