Title: CENTRAL CONTROL SYSTEM

Abstract

A control element is presented for neutronic reactors. The element is longitudinally expansible and compressible and remains within the reactor core at all times. The effectiveness of the element as to neutron absorption is varied by longitudinally compressing or expanding the element, the effectiveness being greatest when the element is fullv expanded and least when it is fully compressed. Two embodiments of the invention are described, one being a coiled spring and the other being an element formed from a plurality of interconnected links.
