Description: Summary: The Mixed Spectrum Superheater (MSSR) is an integral superheater reactor in which boiling occurs in an annular Boiling Water Reactor section and steam in superheated in an unmoderated fast section in the center. A Mixed Spectrum Critical Assembly (MSCA) to be operated at the Vallecitos Atomic Laboratory has been designed to mock up a 75-150 MWe prototype MSSR. The principal experimental measurements aimed at proving the feasibility of the MSSR concept include power distribution, Doppler effect, flooding effects, distribution of reactivity, control rod worths, and the effect of the control system on the power distribution.
