A review of the UK fast reactor programme, March 1979

Abstract

The Status report of the UK activities related to fast-breeder reactor activities includes the following: summary of the operating experience of the prototype Fast Reactor (PFR) during 1978; design studies of the commercial demonstration fast reactor (CDFR); design studies of later advanced LMFBR; engineering developments of high temperature sodium loop, steam generators and instrumentation; materials development; corrosion problems; sodium technology; fuel elements development; PFR fuel reprocessing; safety issues molten fuel-coolant interaction; core structure test; accident analysis; reactor performance studies; experimental reactor physics; fuel management and general neutronics calculation for CDFR; reactor instruments.
