Final Safety Analysis Report: SNAP III Thermoelectric Generator

Description: From summary: An analysis has been performed to determine the ability of the fuel container to withstand the various thermal, mechanical and chemical forces imposed upon the generator by vehicle failures. Where theoretical analysis was impossible, and where experimental evidence was desired, capsules and generators were tested under simulated missile-failure conditions. Thus, the safety limits of SNAP III in a satellite application were defined.

Fluidized Bed Reactor Study: Phase I - Feasibility

Description: From abstract: The Fluidized Bed Reactor (FBR) consists of a bed of fuel pellets which circulate in a confined core region as the result of the upward flow of fluid through the particles. In the present concept the fluid acts as a fluidizing, coolant and reactor moderator medium. This report is the results of the Phase I study to determine the feasibility of this concept.
