POSTER Track 1. Innovative Fast Reactor Designs Poster Session 1


Mr Didier Costes (CEA)


The resting bottom sodium vessel may receive several applications. For a fast reactor, the direct gas circuit without intermediary sodium may increase the thermal efficiency and, conveniently studied, presents no risk of gas arrival perturbing the core. A construction economy seems to appear and, at end of use, the under soil vessel needs no dismantling and could contain radioactive remains, again with economy.. This fast reactor should be studied.
