Description: The Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics proposes to build a zero power research reactor facility which will be located in the laboratory grounds near Clevelaurd, Ohio. The purpose of this report is to inform the Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards of the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission in regard to the design of the reactor facility, the cha,acteristics of the site, and the hazards of operation at this location, The purpose of this reactor is to perform critical experiments, to measure reactivity effects, to serve as a neutron source, and to serve as a training tool. The reactor facility is described. This is followed by a discussion of the nuclear characteristics and the control system. Site characteristics are then discussed followed by a discussion of the experiments which may be conducted in the facility. The potential hazards of the facility are then considered, particularly, the maximum credible accident. Finally, the administrative procedure is discussed.
