Title: MODERATOR ELEMENTS FOR UNIFORM POWER NUCLEAR REACTOR

Abstract

This patent describes a method of obtaining a flatter flux and more uniform power generation across the core of a nuclear reactor. The method comprises using moderator elements having differing moderating strength. The elements have an increasing amount of the better moderating material as a function of radial and/or axial distance from the reactor core center. (AEC)
