Nuclear design and analysis of the fusion transmutation of waste reactor
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 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.
A Fusion Transmutation of Waste Reactor
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 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 ...
Compartative fuel cycle analysis of critical and sub-critical fast reactor transmutation systems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 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 ...
