Title: HEAVY-WATER-MODERATED POWER REACTORS ENGINEERING AND ECONOMIC EVALUATIONS. VOLUME II. ENGINEERING STUDIES AND TECHNICAL DATA

Abstract

The results of preliminary design and evaluation studies of various concepts of a power reactor that is moderated by heavy water and fueled with natural uranium are presented. Twenty-nine conceptal designs were developed for reactors ranging in capacity from 100 Mwe to 460 Mwe. Resigns were prepared for hot- and cold-moderator reac tors of the pressure vessel type, with liquid D/sub 2/O, boiling D/sub 2/O, E/sub 2/O steam, and helium as coolants. Also studied were cold-moderator pressure tube reactors cooled with liquid D/sub 2/O and boiling D/sub 2/O. The repont includes the results of engineering studies of the reactor systems, electrical generation facilities, and auxiliary equipment. (auth)
