In the process of drafting a Performance Test Code for Nuclear Reactor Fuel, a question has arisen as to whether the present state of knowledge and experience will permit the writing of a useful code at this time. This paper summarizes the information currently available, states what can be accomplished by the type of code which can be written now, and recommends that the code be written, incorporating information currently available for immediate use and providing a framework for the addition of further information as it becomes available.
