Definitions for "Depleted uranium"
Uranium having a smaller percentage of uranium-235 than the 0.7 percent found in natural uranium. It is a by-product of the uranium enrichment process, during which uranium-235 is culled from one batch of uranium, thereby depleting it, and then added to another batch to increase its concentrations of uranium-235.
Uranium in which the proportion of uranium 235 to total uranium of all isotopes is decreased from 0.72% to a lower value.
Uranium consisting predominantly of non-fissile uranium.
