    • Pressure Drop Measurements and Flow Distribution Analysis for MIT Research Reactor with Low-Enriched Fuel 

      Yuen-Ting Wong, S.; Hu, Lin-Wen; Kazimi, Mujid S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2008-09-01)
      The MIT Nuclear Research Reactor (MITR) is the only research reactor in the United States that utilizes plate-type fuel elements with longitudinal fins to augment heat transfer. Recent studies on the conversion to ...
    • Design of a Low Enrichment, Enhanced Fast Flux Core for the MIT Research Reactor 

      Ellis, T.S.; Forget, Benoit; Kazimi, Mujid S.; Newton, T.; Pilat, Edward E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2009-02-01)
      Worldwide, there is limited test reactor capacity to perform the required irradiation experiments on advanced fast reactor materials and fuel designs. This is particularly true in the U.S., which no longer has an operating ...
    • Evaluation of the Thermal-Hydraulic Operating Limits of HEU-LEU Transition Cores for the MIT Research Reactor 

      Wan, Yunzhi; Hu, Lin-Wen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2009-05-01)
      The MIT Research Reactor (MITR) is in the process of conducting a design study to convert from High Enrichment Uranium (HEU) fuel to Low Enrichment Uranium (LEU) fuel. The currently selected LEU fuel design contains 18 ...
    • Developing Fuel Management Capabilities Based On Coupled Monte Carlo Depletion in Support of the MIT Research Reactor Conversion 

      Romano, Paul Kollath; Newton, Thomas H., Jr.; Forget, Benoit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2009-06-01)
      Pursuant to a 1986 NRC ruling, the MIT Reactor (MITR) is planning on converting from the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) to low enriched uranium (LEU) for fuel. Prior studies have shown that the MITR will be able ...
    • Estimate of Radiation Release from MIT Reactor with Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) Core During Maximum Hypothetical Accident 

      Plumer, Kevin E.; Newton, Thomas H., Jr.; Forget, Benoit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2011-06-01)
      In accordance with a 1986 NRC ruling, the MIT Research Reactor (MITR) is planning on converting from the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) to low enriched uranium (LEU) for fuel. A component of the conversion analysis ...
    • Design and Optimization of a High Thermal Flux Research Reactor Via Kriging-Based Algorithm 

      Kempf, Stephanie A.; Hu, Lin-Wen; Forget, Benoit (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2011-06-01)
      In response to increasing demands for the services of research reactors, a 5 MW LEUfueled research reactor core is developed and optimized to provide high thermal flux within specified limits upon thermal hydraulic ...
    • Conceptual Design of Molten Salt Loop Experiment for MIT Research Reactor 

      Bean, Malcolm K.; Dewitt, Gregory Lee; Cabeche, Dion T.; Gerrity, Thomas P.; Haratyk, Geoffrey; e.a. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems. MIT Reactor Redesign Program, 2011-08-01)
      Molten salt is a promising coolant candidate for Advanced High Temperature Reactor (AHTR) Gen-IV designs. The low neutron absorption, high thermal capacity, chemical inertness, and high boiling point at low pressure of ...
