22,000 SHAFT HORSEPOWER SHIPBOARD BOILING WATER REACTOR PLANT
Principles of operation and conceptual design features are described for the proposed shipboard application of a forced circulation, direct cycle boiling water reactor plant, capable of producing 22,000 shaft horsepower and meeting the ship's auxiliary steam requirements. Specific consideration is given to the plant description, including: plant performance and design data; safeguard design criteria; ship's layout and equipment arrangement; radiation and shielding; nuclear steam supply system; engine room systems; controls and instrumentation; auxiliary systems; electrical system; and material and equipment lists. Drawings are included. An appendix provides data on manpower, facilities, and commitments for boiling water reactors.
