Abstract: The U.S. Department of Energy has been developing nuclear fuel and cladding candidates with potentially enhanced accident tolerance since the aftermath of the Tōhoku earthquake in 2011. These candidate materials must maintain or improve reactor performance and safety characteristics during normal operation and design basis accidents, while enhancing performance in beyond design basis accidents. This talk presents recent fuel safety research related to reactivity-initiated accidents with advanced cladding materials
