    The goal of this work is to investigate the feasibility of a vented inverted fuel assembly for a sodium-cooled fast reactor. The inverted geometry has been previously investigated for application in Gas-cooled Fast ...

    Nanofluids, engineered colloidal dispersions of nanoparticles in fluid, have been shown to enhance pool and flow boiling CHF. The CHF enhancement was due to nanoparticle deposited on the heater surface, which was verified ...

    A new theoretical framework is introduced, the “neutron excess” concept, which is useful for analyzing breed-and-burn (B&B) reactors and their fuel cycles. Based on this concept, a set of methods has been developed which ...

    A material that resists lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) attack and retains its strength at 700°C would be an enabling technology for LBE-cooled reactors. No single alloy currently exists that can economically meet the required ...
