Title: PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF THE SNAP 2 EXPERIMENTAL REACTOR

Abstract

The operating history of the SNAP 2 Experimental Reactor (SER) and the preliminary results from the testing program are presented. The total energy generated during the life of the reactor was 224,650 kilowatt hours. This is equivalent to approximately one-half year of full-power operation. The methods used to obtain the reactor parameters are also described. The experimental data obtained were generally in excellent agreement with calculated valuess The principal comparisons are tabulated. (auth)
