Investigation of Turbocirculator for Target, a 1000-Mw(e) Reactor: Summary Report

Description: The present study was undertaken for the purpose of determining the feasibility, establishing the required development program, and estimating the cost of a turbocirculator to provide the pumping power for a 1000-Mw(e) high-temperature gas-cooled reactor power plant as part of the TARGET program. This necessitated preliminary design of the turbocirculator in conjunction with the reactor power plant as well as the investigation of methods for the optimization of the turbocirculator and for its d… more

Prestressed Concrete Reactor Vessel Model 1

Description: From introduction: The goal of engineers associated with nuclear power plants is the achievement of safe plants with low generating costs.One possible means of lowering costs is to increase the power generating capability for a single generating unit. To accomplish this, the sizes of nuclear reactors have been increased.
