Title: SABR Fuel Cycle Analysis
Author: Stacey, Weston M. ; Sommer, Christopher ; Van Rooijen, W.
Abstract: Various fuel cycles for a sodium cooled, subcritical, fast reactor, SABR, with a fusion neutron source for the transmutation of light water reactor spent fuel have been analyzed. All fuel cycles were 4-batch, and all but one were constrained by a total fuel residence time consistent with a 200 dpa clad and structure materials damage limit. The objective of this study was to achieve greater than 90% burn up of the transuranics from the spent fuel, consistent with the Advanced Fuel Cycle objectives of DoE. A more detailed account of this work can be found in the MS thesis of the first author.
