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 an estimation of the state of technology in 1980."

Graphite-to-Metal Seal Screening Tests

Description: In the basic design for a two-fluid LMFRE, a seal has to be made between the metal core inlet and the graphite bottom reflector. To evaluate the effectiveness of such a method of sealing, a screening test apparatus was constructed to determine quickly the physical parameters and the best configuration for interface contact

Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor Experiment: Dynamic Utility Test Loop

Description: This report provides an overview of the creation of the Liquid Metal Fuel Reactor Experiment program. It furthers the work by constructing a single loop to test all the components required for the 16 loop reactor. This utility loop was also constructed to provide a facility for testing various components such as valves and flow meters.
