Title: CORE CHARACTERISTICS OF FOUR ARMY PACKAGE POWER REACTORS

Abstract

The core characteristics of four Army Package Power Reactors (APPH-1, APPR-lA, APPR-lB, and Skid Mounted APPR) are presented and compared. This family of reactors empjoys stainless steel plate-type fuel elements. The core characteristics are predicted on the basis of modified two-group theory. The calculated control rod bank positions and reactivity are compared with measurements taken during the burnout of APPR-1 Core 1. (W.D.M.)
