1000-MWe LMFBR Follow-On Study, Task I Report: Volume 1

Description: From introduction: "The objective of this study is to provide information that will assist the Atomic Energy Commission in furthering the National Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) Program. We plan to accomplish this end, in part, by extending the original studies to include system and component design and parametric evaluations of the nuclear steam supply system and its related systems and subsystems based on a n estimation of the state of technology in 1980."
