Title: Initial Testing and Operation of the Argonne Low Power Reactor (ALPR)

Abstract

The major events of a program designed to test and operate the completed reactor power plant and associated equipment are described. The design and construction phases of the project, component installation, preliminary systems testing, zero-power experiments, areas affected by the design parameters, reactor operation, plant safety, and reactor operator training are covered.
