TEMPERATURE DISTRIBUTION AND THERMAL STRESS IN REACTOR CORE APPR-1

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The feasibility of the Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor (LMFR) proposed by Brookhaven National Laboratory as a source of electric power was thoroughly investigated. The reference design is based on an LMFR using U dissolved in Bi as the fuel and a thorium bismuthide in Bi slurry as the blanket. Detailed estimates of power costs are presented for electrical power stations from 226 to 904 Mw net electrical capability. (C.W.H.)
