Dounreay's Prototype Fast Reactor (PFR) was the second and last fast reactor to be built in the UK. The success of the experimental fast The success of the experimental fast Abstract The Prototype Fast Reactor (PFR) at Dounreay, UK, started operation in and was closed down in References 1 J. A. G.

The purpose of constructing JOYO was to obtain technical information about liquid-metal fast breeder reactors (LMFBRs) through experience with their design, construction, and operation and to use the reactor as a fast neutron irradiation facility for the development of fuels, materials, and other components required for the LMFBR program. Fast Breeder Reactors covers the proceedings of the London Conference on Fast Breeder Reactors, organized by the British Nuclear Energy Society. This conference highlights the technical and commercial aspects of nuclear power. This book is organized into five sections encompassing 37 .

No. 4, Velizy - Villacoublay, France AEA Reactor Services, Risley, Warrington Cited by: A fast-neutron reactor (FNR) or simply a fast reactor is a category of nuclear reactor in which the fission chain reaction is sustained by fast neutrons (carrying energies above MeV or greater, on average), as opposed to thermal neutrons used in thermal-neutron a reactor needs no neutron moderator, but requires fuel that is relatively rich in fissile material when compared to. Decommissioning costs for nuclear power plants, including disposal of associated wastes, contribute only a small fraction of the total cost of electricity generation. Proven techniques and equipment are available to dismantle nuclear facilities. Fast reactor core and fuel structural behaviour. In this paper, experience with the in-service mechanical performance of the PFR absorber system and distortion behaviour of the in-core components of the system is described. Introduction 1. Post irradiation examination (PIE) of the in-core elements of the system ie the absorber rods and.
