The design and engineering of a wetted wall cavity is in progress
at UCLA as a part of an InertialFusion Energy (IFE)reactor study led
by McDonnell Douglas. In this paper, we outlinethe design metho-
dology, analyze the thermal, mechanical, nuclear and energy conver-
sion attributes of the cavity, and present possible solutions to outstan-
ding problems.
InDoduction
A multi-institutional team led by McDonnell Douglas has under-
taken a study which includes the design of both a laser-driven (KrF)
and heavy-ion-driven (HI) commercial fusion power reactor. A more
general paper describing the overall reactor designs can be found in
this proceedings [l]. The cavity, which is the subject of this paper,
involves the components surrounding the pellet reaction chamber,
including the first wall, blanket, coolant manifolding and shield.
