TL;DR: In this paper, the authors describe a fuel assembly for a boiling water reactor which is adapted to allow water to flow upwards through the fuel assembly while absorbing heat from a plurality of fuel rods, whereby part of the water is transformed into steam.
Abstract: The invention relates to a fuel assembly for a boiling water reactor which is adapted, during operation of the reactor, to allow water to flow upwards through the fuel assembly while absorbing heat from a plurality of fuel rods, whereby part of the water is transformed into steam The fuel assembly comprises a steam channel through which the steam flows through the fuel assembly The steam channel (16a, 16b, 16c, 16d) consists of an empty volume which at least extends through part of the fuel assembly The fuel assembly is designed such that the water and the steam are brought to rotate around the steam channel whereby the water is thrown away from the steam channel whereas the steam which is separated from the water flows upwards through the steam channel
