Optimization tests to improve dismantling operations and, in parallel, preliminary testing of new experimental facilities will be carried out; it includes a drying system for wet, defective spent fuel (SF) rods, a system to apply vibration to SF rods, a focused ion beam (FIB) to prepare small specimens for analysis, a setup for creep tests on SF rodlets.
