NULEAR ENGINEERING AND DESIGN

Concepts of fast breeder reactors fueled with fused chlorides of uranium, plutonium, sodium and/or potassium and cooled directly with boiling coolant are discussed including the SAWA reactor boiling homogeneously with aluminium chloride as coolant, and the WARS reactor boiling heterogeneously with metallic mercury as coolant.

Some preliminary calculations for 1000 MWt reactors of both types were performed. The characteristics considered are: SAWA concept: 6000 litre core, 0.33 MW/l, cooled with 1340 kg of AlCl3 per second; WARS concept: 10500 litre core, 0.40 MW/l, cooled with 3300 kg of Hg per second.
