HEAVY WATER MODERATED POWER REACTORS. Progress Report for February 1960

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

At the end of February 1960, 30% of the construction of the Heavy Water Components Test Reactor (HWCTR) was compplete. Limits for safe operation of the reactor were defined, and the general procedures for startup, shutdown, and normal operation here formulated. A detailed analysis of operating stresses in the reactor vessel defined the ling that can be tolerated. Core swelling produced a maximum cladding strain of 0.7% in a Zircaloy-2-clad tube of U-2 wt.% Zr that was irradiated to an average burnup of 1100 Mwd/t in the VBWR. (For preceding period see DP-465.) (auth)
