Title: ARGONNE HIGH-FLUX RESEARCH REACTOR-AHFR CONCEPTUAL DESIGN STUDY

Abstract

This report presents a reactor design to meet the needs of the basic research program at Argonne National Laboratory. The program requires some irradiations in thermal neutron flux approaching 5 x 10/sup 15/n/ (cm/sup 2/ )(sec) and some beam experiments having over 10/sup 15/ n/(cm/sup 2/) available. Parametric studies indicate that the highest peak thermal flux per unit of reactor power can be obtained in an internal H/sub 2/ reflector having a radius of about 6 cm. Since the design effonts recognized total reactor cost as a mator parameter, an all H/sub 2/O-cooled system was adopted as most expedient. Further, the design and calculations effont was directed toward operating conditions which require little or no research effort. This latter point is a recognition both of the over-all cost plus a desire to meet the needs of research in the shortest possible time. (auth)
