ABSTRACT

A new concept of High Flux Reactor with Solid Coolant (HFRSC) is presented. Due to application of high temperature moving fuel with significant heat capacity, used to accumulate energy generated in the reactor core, it is possible to overcome technological and physical barriers limiting the values of neutron fluxes in case of traditional reactor design. For HFRSC MEU or LEU is a natural choice to ensure essential temperature coefficient of reactivity. Application of water in the reactor core only as a moderator creates an opportunity to avoid pressurized circuit and place reactor into pool with all the advantages both for reactor safety and easy access to experimental facilities. A comparison with traditional high flux research reactor concept (ANS) is presented.
