Calculated physics and performance parameters for the ACPR upgrade

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Reactor physics and core design calculations have been completed for the upgrade of the Annular Core Pulse Reactor (ACPR) at Sandia Laboratories. The ACPR has been in operation since 1967 and is a U-Zr H/sub 1.6/ fueled swimming pool type reactor with a large dry central experiment cavity. The purpose of the upgrade of the ACPR is to provide improved pulse and steady-state capabilities for performing neutron simulation and reactor safety tests. The performance goals for the ACPR Upgrade were to achieve a factor of 2.6 times the pulse fluence available with the ACPR and a factor of 2 increase ... continued below

The performance goals for the ACPR Upgrade were to achieve a factor of 2.6 times the pulse fluence available with the ACPR and a factor of 2 increase in the steady-state flux. In addition, the pulse width of the upgraded reactor was to be as short as practical to maintain the rapid transient simulation capability of the ACPR.
