Fraction of grain face area occupied by bubbles versus the average projected area of the bubbles, observed in UO2 fuel with pellet average burnups between 9 and 28 MWd(kgU)−1 by White [62], Small [60] and Kashibe and Une [61]. The solid line is a plot of equation (15), combined with nb (Āp) from equation (12), and the dashed line represents the saturated grain face condition ϕ2 = 0.48.
