The Guide for
Irradiation Experiments in TREAT provides prospective experimenters
with initial guidance and
requirements for performing experiment irradiations in the Transient Reactor
Test (TREAT) Facility. The guide provides technical requirements for
materials inserted into the TREAT reactor and the conditions that apply with the associated process for conducting
an irradiation experiment.
The general guidance included here is
intended to provide experimenters the basics necessary for concept development and initial feasibility discussions. Additional
information will be provided upon request to support experiment planning. This general guide is not intended to address every aspect and
scenario of potential experiments. An experienced team at INL and TREAT will
work with experimenters to finalize experiment development and ensure full
compliance with all requirements.
The table below provides an
overview of the experiment process starting with initial contact between the experimenter
and the INL/TREAT team regarding the experiment and ending with the final disposition of an
experiment. Each step in the process is explained in detail in the indicated sections of the guide.
Experimenters can request additional information by email (TREAT@inl.gov) or by calling (208) 526-4644.
