IV. SCOPE OF WORK AND DIVISION OF EFFORT
A. Laboratory Effort
In general, the Laboratory shall design and supply the ARBOR
Facility components which are unusual with respect to normal industrial
practice or which are particularly vital to reactor operation. These include:
1. All reactor components, including the reactor vessel shell,
support, insulation, internal fittings, fuel elements, control rods, control
rod drives, and top cover. The Laboratory has placed a contract for fabri-
cation of the reactor vessel and will be responsible through a subcontract
for transport and installation. Connection to the system piping will also be
the Laboratory's responsibility.
2. Fuel handling equipment.
3. All coffins for the transference of radioactive materials.
4. Nuclear and radioactivity monitoring instrumentation.
Information as to location and support requirements will be supplied by the
Laboratory for incorporation into the proper Architect-Engineer drawings.
5. Research instrumentation (within the reactor vessel and
related special apparatus outside). Structural and mechanical requirements,
such as conduit locations, etc., will be supplied to the Architect-Engineer
for incorporation into the proper drawings.
B. Architect-Engineer Effort
The Architect-Engineer shall execute the detailed design of all
other portions of the ARBOR Facility not listed above as designed by the
Laboratory, in accordance with design requirements established by the
Laboratory, and shall prepare detailed specifications for said items. Within
this area the Architect-Engineer shall perform the necessary design work
with a minimum of guidance and supervision by the Laboratory. The fol-
lowing is a partial list of these items:
Site development (including roads, fences, walls, water
supply systems, lighting, security buildings, electrical power supply, etc.).
2. Primary System
a. Water Coolers and Steam Condensers - Investigation
of the most suitable method of heat disposal from the reactor system has
been in progress at the Laboratory for a considerable length of time.
Engineering estimates of various types of heat exchangers have been reviewed
Here’s what’s next.
