ABSTRACT
The design of a wetted wall reactor cavity was under-
taken at UCLA as a part of the Prometheus Inertial
Fusion Energy (IFE) reactor study. In this paper, we
review the final design concept and summarize the
results of detailed analysis on several of the key
aspects of the cavity design. A more complete des-
cription of the design and analysis is contained in
the study final report [l].
INTRODUCTION
The cavity consists of the components directly surrounding the
exploding targets, including the first wall system, blanket,
coolant manifolding, vacuum vessel, and shield. These com-
ponents contain the energy of the blast, absorb the neutrons
produced, convert energy into usable heat, breed tritium to
sustain the DT fuel cycle, and shield components and person-
