A Conceptual Design of a Thorium-Uranium (233) Power Breeder Reactor

Description: From abstract: A conceptual design study has been performed for a sodium cooled, graphite moderated, thermal power-breeder reactor utilizing the Thorium-Uranium 233 breeding cycle. Several aspects of the design of the system are considered but no attempt has been made to supply all the details. It appears that the design presented is feasible and will allow the production of economic power as well as full utilization of thorium resources.

The H-4, H-5, and H-6 Irradiation Experiments: Irradiation of N-Reactor Graphite, Interim Report Number 1

Description: Report regarding an experimental program by Hanford Laboratories' in order "to determine the long-term irradiation behavior of the graphite used as the moderator in N-Reactor. The primary objectives of the program are to provide data for predictions of the distortion of the N-Reactor moderator and the stress conditions which could arise from the difference in the the rate and extent of contraction between the transverse and parallel orientations of the graphite bars" (p. 1).
