Design, testing, and fabrication of heat sources for underwater application

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The sequence of events in the design, testing and fabrication of a radioisotopic heat source using available $sup 238$PuO$sub 2$ fuel that would be amenable to a Navy 0.5-W (electrical) Radioisotopic Thermoelectric Generator for undersea application is discussed. Various designs were considered as a function of heat leak in order to adopt the most desirable capsule for a volume- constrained application. Testing considerations are discussed for capsule compliance with IAEA/ENEA Safety Series 6 and 33 and 10 CFR 71. (auth)
