A standard fast reactor spectrum can be created by the partial moderation of the U-235 fission spectrum in an air cavity. Spherical natural uranium shells are driven by thermal neutrons from a thermal column. The uranium is placed at the center of a spherical graphite hohlraum to reduce the anisotropic...
Spatial flux profiles were calculated in idealized,
optically-thin ( 1 mfp) cell systems using integral
transport theory. Numerical accuracy improvement and
convergence efficiency in computing these spatial flux
profiles was the primary concern. Toward these ends, kernel
volume-averaging techniques for curvilinear cell systems, a
reflective angular-dependent edge source boundary condition...
This study focuses on the development of a methodology
to evaluate safeguardability of various processes in the
nuclear fuel cycle.
National and international implementation of safeguards
systems has been investigated. It was concluded that
proliferation is purely a political question that,
hopefully, can be prevented by international norms and
