This reports on studies conducted to determine the effect of a nuclear power plant on design requirements for the first nuclear-powered merchant vessel and is based on preliminary power-plant information. Some aspects of reactor safety and containment vessel design are also considered. The report is not all inclusive. Rather, results of some of the effects of reactor accidents, information on radioactive materials which must be handled routinely and their inherent hazards is found in Chapter 3. The calculational methods used are presented in the extensive appendices.
