Multigroup diffusion theory formulation of the calculation of the mean square slowing down distance in an infinite medium by B. J Toppel(
)
2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Simple expressions for the mean square distance from a point fission source for slowing down past a given energy and for the mean square distance of neutrons that belong to a given energy group are derived within the framework of multigroup diffusion theory. The expressions may be applied to systems having arbitrary group transfer cross sections

The coupled aspects of a fastthermal critical : ZPRV by B. J Toppel(
)
2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ZPRV is a zeropower, coupled fastthermal critical assembly involving a dilute fast core and a H/sub 2/Omoderated, enriched U thermal annulus. The two regions are coupled through a natural U isolation blanket. This facility is useful in studying some of the properties of dilute fast reactor systems as well as those of coupled fastthermal power breeders. Recent emphasis has been on the latter aspect of the problem and an investigation of the coupled aspects of the system has been made. An important parameter in the coupling concept is the division of reactivity. This can be determined by means of fast fuel substitutions and 1/v poisoning of the thermal annulus in conjunction with theoretical calculations. Auxiliary information obtained in such a procedure is the fast fuel worth throughout the core and the prompt neutron lifetime of the whole system. A second important pnrameter, S/sub 1/S/sub 2/, is the relative number of neutrons emitted per unit time due to fast and slow fissions. Information regarding this quantity can be obtained with the aid of U/sup 235/ and U/sup 238/ fission distributions. Measurenments of thc above parameters were made for the case of a U/sup 238/:U/sup 235/ atomic ratio of 5:1 in the fast core and a 1in. isolation blanket. The fractions of reactivity in the fast core, blanket, and annulus are, respectively, 24, 14, and 61%; the prompt lifetime is 39.0 plus or minus 3.0 mu sec; the ratio S/sub 1/S/sub 2/ is 0.43. (auth)

)
2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The code RE128 assumes all delayedneutron precursors in equilibrium at the time of the step, while the code RE135 allows cases with nonequilibrium precursors to be handled. RE126 can handle the case of zero final reactivity. Both codes are written in FORTRAN language

Conceptual design of a coupled breeding superheating reactor, CBSR by R Avery(
)
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The conceptual design of the Coupled Breeding Superheating Reactor, CBSR, for achieving a positive breeding gain and for producing 65 Mw of electric power is presented. The design combines a steamcooled fast region and a nonboiling pressurized lightwatercooled thermal region. The advantage offered by this arrangement as compared with that using a solid moderator in the thermal zone is that, if a power excursion occurs, the water will increase the void content and tend to limit the excursion. The total reactor power is 216 Mwt, of which 163 Mwt is used to superheat steam as it passes through the fast regions of the reactor and 53 Mwt is transferred to the pressurized water

A user's guide for the REBUS3 fuel cycle analysis capability by B. J Toppel(
)
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
REBUS3 is a system of programs designed for the fuelcycle analysis of fast reactors. This new capability is an extension and refinement of the REBUS3 code system and complies with the standard code practices and interface dataset specifications of the Committee on Computer Code Coordination (CCCC). The new code is hence divorced from the earlier ARC System. In addition, the coding has been designed to enhance code exportability

The speed and twobank memory capacity of the CDC3600 computer at Argonne has prompted a reprogramming effort to relax some of the original restrictions on dimensions of variables, and to provided a much more elaborate output edit. In connection with the revised output edit, the associated crosssection library preparation code, LIBP, was modified. The revised codes to be described here are written entirely in 3600 FORTRAN

The reactor physicist is primarily concerned with solving the Boltzmann equation for a particular physical configuration. In addition, the reactor designer is involved with numerous adjunct problems to further define the interaction of the reactor with its environment. In this area, for example, the problem will be influenced by the engineering realities of the physical system

Safety analysis associated with the plutonium recycle experiment in EBWR by B. J Toppel(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Experimental Boiling Water Reactor (EBWR) was originally constructed to demonstrate the feasibility of a directcycle, naturalcirculation, boilingwater reactor integrated power plant. The reactor was designed to produce 20,000 kW of heat in the form of 600psig saturated steam which was fed directly to a turbogenerator, generating about 5,000 kW of electricity. This power level was considered as a minimum value for producing useful information which could be extrapolated and used in the design of large, centralstation power plants. The reactor achieved criticality during December 1956, and began fullpower operation at 20 MWt on December 29, 1956
