Studies of the BN-350 reactor fuel, structural and absorbing materials conducted at the hot laboratory of the IPPE are described in brief. In total, five driver and four experimental fuel assemblies, two safety rod guide tubes, and ten control rods were investigated. In addition, more than 10,000 material test samples of austenitic and ferrite-martensitic steels, high-nickel alloys and pure metals were studied.
