NUCLEAR SHIP DESIGN
Substitution of nuclear power for conventional power in merchant ship propulsion causes changes in some of the factors involved in design and operation. These changes are reflected in the subsequent economic analysis, affecting both earning capacity and operating costs. Weight and space adjustments are discussed, and various power cycles are evaluated including boiling water, pressurized water, organic moderated, and gas cooled.
