    • Feasibility of breeding in hard spectrum boiling water reactors with oxide and nitride fuels 

      Feng, Bo, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
      This study assesses the neutronic, thermal-hydraulic, and fuel performance aspects of using nitride fuel in place of oxides in Pu-based high conversion light water reactor designs. Using the higher density nitride fuel ...
    • On the use of high performance annular fuel in PWRs 

      Feng, Bo, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Recently, MIT's Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems developed a new high burnup annular fuel that features both internal and external cooling. Implementation of this fuel design in current pressurized water reactors ...
