Reflector Moderated Solid Fuel Element Sodium Cooled Reactor Critical Mass vs. Power Density

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This is the sixth of seven reports to be issued on the parametric studies of reflector-island moderated and core moderated solid fuel element reactors. The power distribution and hence fuel volume were varied for the optimum island size reflector moderated reactor. The effect on the critical mass, power distribution and neutron leakage was determined and is plotted in Figures 1, 2, and 3.
