The mechanical interaction between the nuclear fuel pellets and the cladding tubes (PCMI) is very important for safety studies as this phenomenon could lead to fuel failure and release of radioactivity. During a power increase in a nuclear power plant the fuel pellets interact with the cladding due to its thermal expansion. Similarly, it is important to investigate the long-term behaviour of irradiated claddings exposed to corrosion and hydrogen uptake in normal operation and in an interim dry storage facility.
