• Compartative fuel cycle analysis of critical and sub-critical fast reactor transmutation systems 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2003-10)
      Fuel cycle analyses are performed to evaluate the impacts of further transmutation of spent nuclear fuel on high-level and low-level waste mass flows into repositories, on the composition and toxicity of the high-level ...
    • A Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright); Kessler, G. P.; Kirby, C. M.; Mauer, A. N.; Noble, J. J.; Stopp, D. M.; Ulevich, D. S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2002-03)
      A design concept and the performance characteristics for a fusion transmutation of waste reactor (FTWR)—a sub-critical fast reactor driven by a tokamak fusion neutron source--are presented. The present design concept is ...
    • Nuclear design and analysis of the fusion transmutation of waste reactor 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2004-01)
      The nuclear design and safety analyses for the Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor (FTWR) are described. The advantages of sub-critical operation for nuclear stability and safety are illustrated.
    • Sub-critical Transmutation Reactors with Tokamak Fusion Neutron Sources 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2005)
      The principal results of a series of design scoping studies of sub-critical fast transmutation reactors (based on the nuclear and processing technology being developed in the USDoE Generation IV, Advanced Fuel Cycle ...
    • A Superconducting Tokamak Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Mauer, A. N.; Mandrekas, John; Hoffman, E. A. (Elisha Albright) (Georgia Institute of TechnologyAmerican Nuclear Society, 2004-01)
      We are developing a Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor (FTWR) concept—a sub-critical, metal fuel, liquid metal cooled fast reactor driven by a tokamak DT fusion neutron source. An emphasis is placed on using nuclear, ...
