The report presents the preliminary results of a study, in which various reactor physical properties of a conventional PWR UOX and MOX assemblies are compared to the advanced MOX-UE concept. The MOX-UE assembly consists of a homogeneous lattice of MOX pins with multi-recycled plutonium and enriched-uranium support. Additional moderation is provided using extra water channels to compensate for the hardening of the.
