Aerospace Safety Program: summary report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Projects in support of the Aerospace Nuclear Safety Program are summarized. The objective of the program was to evaluate the radiological safety of SNAP systems and to develop methods and designs to assure that safety. Projects summarized are analyses and experiments for determining: (1) the disintegration of reactors reentering the atmosphere; (2) the burnup of fuel elements reentering the atmosphere, including ablation and dispersal of particles; (3) reactor criticality conditions and the assurance of subcriticality in water; (4) the behavior of reactors in transient power operation; (5) the nuclear behavior of reactors on impact with the earth and in handling ... continued below
