Abstract

The Scottish Research Reactor Centre is now under construction and will be completed and in operation by the summer of 1963. The reactor is 100 kW of the tank type with water cooling and water/graphite moderation using enriched U{sup 235} fuel. The experimental facilities include a large thermal column, a large shield experiment water tank and a radioisotope production facility with transfer rabbit tubes. There are effectively three through tubes in the central core; one through tube in the thermal column, several small central vertical stringers and one six-inch square vertical stringer penetrating to the centre of the core. Many horizontal stringers pass through the thermal column, the central one penetrating to within one inch of a fuel tank. The reactor facilities are supported by a wide variety of adjacent small laboratories. These include hot source handling and preparation facilities, changing rooms, electrical and mechanical workshops, darkrooms, microcurie laboratories, animal house, biological and chemical laboratories, low-background counting room, lecture theatre and a library. It is expected that the research will extend over many scientific and technological disciplines; a good proportion of the work will involve short-lived radioisotopes and typical projects are described.

(author) [French] Le reacteur de recherche ecossais actuellement en construction sera termine et entrera en service pendant l'ete 1963. Il s'agit d'un reacteur-piscine de 100kW a uranium-235 enrichi, refroidi a l'eau eti ralenti a l'eau et au graphite. Les installations experimentales comprennent une grande colonne thermique, un grand reservoir d'eau blinde pour les experiences, et une installation de production de radioisotopes munie de tubes de transfert a fonctionnement pneumatique. Trois tubes traversent le coeur central, un autre traverse la colonne thermique. Il existe eniin plusieurs petites gouttieres verticales centrales et une gouttiere verticale a section carree de 15 cm de cSte, qui penetre jusqu'au centre du coeur. De nombreuses gouttieres horizontales traversent la colonne thermique, la gouttiere centrale penetrant jusqu'a 2,5 cm d'un reservoir de combustible. Le reacteur est dote de toute une serie de petits laboratoires adjacents: installations de manutention et de preparation de sources de haute activite, vestiaires, ateliers d'electricite et de mecanique, chambres noires, laboratoires pour activites de l'order du microcurie, salle pour animaux, laboratoires de biologie et de chimie, salle de comptage a faible bruit de fond'amphitheatre et bibliotheque. On pense que les recherches s'etendront a de nombreuses disciplines scientifiques et technologiques; une grande partie du travail portera sur les radioisotopes a courte periode; l'auteur decrit quelques projects caracteristiques. (author) [Spanish] El centro del reactor de investigacion de Escocia se encuentra en construccion, calculandose que entrara en servicio en el verano de 1963. El reactor de tipo tanque tiene una potencia de 100 kW, es refrigerado por agua y moderado por agua y grafito; el combustible es uranio enriquecido en el isotopo sssu. Las instalaciones experimentales consisten en una gran columna termica, con tanque de agua blindado de grandes dimensiones y una instalacion de produccion de radioisotopos con tuberias de transporte neumatico. El cuerpo central es atravesado por tres tubos, la columna termica, por uno; ademas, existen varios pequenos dispositivos centrales de acceso vertical y otro dispositivo de acceso de seccion cuadrada , de 6 pulgadas, que penetra verticalmente hasta el centro del cuerpo del reactor. Muchos otros dispositivos de acceso horizontal atraviesan la columna termica, y el del centro del cuerpo penetra hasta 1 pulgada de los tanques de combustible. El centro comprendera un gran numero de locales auxiliares en los que se instalaran dispositivos para manejar y preparar fuentes de alta actividad, vestuarios, talleres electricos y mecanicos, cuartos oscuros, laboratorios para trabajar con actividades del orden del microcurie, criaderos de animales, laboratorios biologicos y quimicos, local de recuento de baja actividad de fondo, sala de conferencias y biblioteca. Se espera que las investigaciones abarquen muchos campos cientificos y tecnologicos. Gran parte de los trabajos se efectuaran con ayuda de radioisotopos de periodo corto. La memoria describe algunos de los proyectos mas caracteristicos. (author) [Russian] V nastojashhee vremja vedetsja stroitel'stvo Shotlandskogo issledovatel'skogo reaktornogo centra, kotoryj vstupit v stroj k vesne 1963 goda. Ustanovka predstavljaet soboj reaktor bakovogo tipa moshhnost'ju 100 kvt s vodjanym ohlazhdeniem i vodografitovym zamedlitelem pri ispol'zovanii obogashhennogo topliva (uran{sup 235}). Jeksperimental'noe tehnicheskoe oborudovanie vkljuchaet bol'shuju teplovuju kolonnu., bol'shoj vodjanoj bak s zashhitoj, a takzhe ustanovku dlja proizvodstva radioizotopov s pnevmaticheskim transporterom. V centre aktivnoj zony imejutsja tri skvoznye truby; imeetsja takzhe odna skvoznaja truba v teplovoj kolonne,a takzhe neskol'ko nebol'shih central'nyh vertikal'nyh stringerov i odin vertikal'nyj stringer secheniem v dkjmov, dohodjashhie do centra aktivnoj zony reaktora. Mnogo gorizontal'nyh stringerov prohodit cherez teplovuju kolonnu, prichem central'nyj stringer prohodit na rasstojanii odnogo dkjma ot toplivnogo baka. V dopolnenie k reaktornomu tehnicheskomu oborudovanie imeetsja mnozhestvo nebol'shih laboratorij. Jeti laboratorii vkljuchajut oborudovanie dlja poluchenija gorjachih istochnikov i raboty s nimi, a takzhe komnatu dlja pereodevanija, jelektricheskie i mehanicheskie masterskie, temnye komnaty, laboratorii dlja raboty s mikrokjurievymi kolichestvami, pomeshhenie dlja zhivotnyh, biologicheskuju i himicheskuju laboratorii, schetnuju komnatu s nizkim urovnem fona, lekcionnyj zal i biblioteku. Predpolagaetsja, chto issledovanija budut kasat'sja mnogih nauchnyh i tehnicheskih disciplin: bol'shaja chast' raboty budet svjazana s ispol'zovaniem korotkozhivushhih radioizotopov. Opisyvajutsja tipovye proekty. (author)}
