Title: Pile construction

Abstract

A graphite-moderated, water-cooled nuclear reactor including graphite blocks disposed in transverse alternate layers, one set of alternate layers consisting of alternate full size blocks and smaller blocks through which cooling tubes containing fuel extend, said smaller blocks consisting alternately of tube bearing blocks and support block, the support blocks being smaller than the tube bearing blocks, the aperture of each support block being tapered so as to provide the tube extending therethrough with a narrow region of support while being elsewhere spaced therefrom.
