Consolidated Edision Thorium Reactor Physics Design

Description: The nuclear characteristics of the CETR are described. Core operating lifetime, control-rod worth, and power density distribution are discussed in relation to maximizing the core operating life. Other objectives of nuclear design are to minimize the power-density variation and to assure control of the reactor.

Cost Study of a 100-Mw(e) Direct-Cycle Boiling Water Reactor Plant

Description: Report issued by the Argonne national Laboratory discussing a technical and economic evaluation of a direct-cycle light-water boiling reactor designed for natural circulation and internal steam-water separation. The reference 100-Mw(e) reactor power plant design evolved from the study should have the best chance (compared to similar plants) of approaching the 8 to 9 mill/kwh total power-cost level. This report includes tables, and illustrations.

Thermal and Hydraulic Design of the Consolidated Edison Thorium Reactor

Description: This report presents the thermal and hydraulic analyses, both steady state and transient, for the CETR. Methods of calculations are discussed and results of analyses are presented. Steady state analyses are included for: pressure drops, flow distribution, orificing, burnout, fuel central melting, local boiling, and bulk boiling. Transient analyses are performed for several loss of forced coolant flow incidents.

Consolidated Edison Thorium Reactor: Reactor Vessel Internal Components Design

Description: The design functions and fabrication details for internal components of the CETR are presented and pertinent analytical stress studies are summarized. Functions of the internal components include proper orientation and support for the fuel elements, proper distribution of primary coolant within the reactor vessel, and the establishment of guide channels for the control rods.

Irradiation of an Aluminum Alloy-Clad, Aluminum-Uranium Alloy-Fueled Plate

Description: Report issued by the Argonne National Laboratory discussing irradiation tests of an aluminum alloy-clad, aluminum-uranium alloy fuel plate. As stated in the introduction, "calculations were made to determine the lowest possible pressure which would allow the maximum possible local boiling on the plate and still assure a margin of safety against burnout" (p. 9). This report includes tables, illustrations, and photographs.
