THE APPLICATION OF BOILING WATER REACTORS IN VARIOUS SHIP TYPES, ADDITIONAL STUDIES
Data is presented on an investigation conducted on the feasibility and the economics of the application of the direct cycle boiling water reactor described in General Electric's Report No. GEAP-3295 in a variety of ship types and sizes. As a basis for an economic evaluation of the various applications, an oil-fired "conventional" counterpart of each nuclear-powered design was also developed and studied. Included as a special case is a single application of a pressurized water reactor to a passenger liner.
