When fuel rods have defects, the fission products in the fuel rods will come out and enter the reactor coolant through the defects. The release of the fission products will result in the increase of radiation dose, the indeterminacy of the fuel management and will influence the economics and safety of the nuclear power station. Based on the analysis of the typical nuclides activities in reactor coolant, the evaluation of the defect fuel rods can be realized. This paper studied the related analysis around the world and determined the methods to evaluate the number, the defect type (open or tight) and the burn-up of the defect fuel rods.

The evaluation method of this paper can be used to evaluate the defects of fuel rods, and can provide valuable information for the fuel management and dose analysis, and also can be a useful technical support to the operation of nuclear power station.
