SPECIAL TOPIC INTERNATIONAL TOKAMAK REACTOR -
 

Summary: SPECIAL TOPIC
INTERNATIONAL TOKAMAK REACTOR -
PHASE TWO A, PART I
Executive Summary of the IAEA Workshop, 1981-1983
INTOR Group*
ABSTRACT. The results of the studies of critical issues affecting the feasibility, objectives and cost of the
INTOR design for a tokamak engineering test reactor that have been carried out in the INTOR Workshop over the
period 1981-83 are summarized. An improved INTOR design concept is described. The objectives, schedule and
test programme of INTOR are discussed, and specific R and D programmes are suggested to resolve design
uncertainties.
