Metal matrix microencapsulated (M3) fuel is one of the research directions on Accident Tolerant Fuel (ATF). In this article, it provides one of ATF design which consists of BISO (Bistructural ISOtropic) particles embedded in a zirconium alloy matrix, and the cladding coating with silicon carbon (SiC). The temperature distribution of the ATF element has been built, and then the center temperature has also been calculated based on the operation parameters of the large-scale pressurized-water reactor. Simultaneity, the several factors of fuel failure is preliminary analyzed and calculated, especially the pressure shell failure mechanism.
