International experience in nuclear energy safety issues shows that the in-pile tests of samples of various kinds of fuels (mixed, low-enriched, regenerated, etc.) involve considerable expenditure and present a higher radiation risk than out-of-pile experiments. The paper describes a facility that allows the out-of-pile investigation of nuclear fuels.
