The Period Effect in Reactor Dynamics

Description: From Abstract: "An alternative approach is presented with attempts to demonstrate that insight may be gained from a consideration that the basic cause of the effect may be due to reactivity rather than to period as the previous authors assumed. Methods for compensating for this effect are discussed."

Preliminary Design of a Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER)

Description: From Introduction: "Information has been accumulated about the property changes produced, but there are essentially no reliable quantitative data correlating property changes with the magnitude and energy distribution of the neutron fluxes responsible for the changes. The design of the Basic Radiation Effects Reactor (BRER) presented herein stems from the two main requirements: 1. a fairly high-level, high-energy neutron flux with minimal thermal neutron and gamma-ray background is desired; 2. the peak of the neutron-energy spectrum should be variable within the approximate range from 10 to 1000 kev."
