Dounreay PFR irradiation history for the joint US/UK actinide sample exposures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The operating history of the Dounreay Prototype Fast Reactor is presented to the extent that it is relevant to the irradiation of actinide specimens that were subsequently analyzed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Three fuel pins with actinide samples were irradiated from July 1982 to July 1988 and returned to ORNL for analysis. They contained isotopes of elements from thorium to curium. The times when each of these fuel pins were in the reactor core are described as are the operating power levels and neutron spectra. The appendices give daily power levels of the reactor as well as six-group ... continued below

The appendices give daily power levels of the reactor as well as six-group neutron energy spectra for various times and axial positions in the core.
