Abstract:

Results of theoretical studies of optimized reactor systems are presented. An optimized thermal reactor is defined as a system which is constructed in such a way that the thermal flux andor power are inherently uniform in the power producing volume of the reactor, at least in the new clean core. Since the flux andor power can also be adjusted to some extent by external control of the internal environment, i.e., the motion of control rods, fuel elements, etc., the term optimized as used in the present report also implies a minimum of external control.
