Tristructural-isotropic coated fuel particle is an important fuel design for high-temperature gas-cooled reactor. Irradiation-induced pyrocarbon (PyC) shrinkage and creep behavior will affect greatly the stresses of a TRISO-coated particle. In this study, 5 cases under different conditions by analytical solution were studied to calculate the particle stresses with different fuel behavior. These cases varied in particle geometries, the mount of gas pressure or fuel behavior. A comparison between the results and other benchmarking studies among different codes was made. The results indicated that the calculated results in this study were in good agreement with other codes.
