NUCLEAR MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR PROJECT EXTENDED ZERO POWER TESTS, NS SAVANNAH CORE 1. FINAL REPORT. VOLUME 1

Experiments were performed on the N.S. Savannah Service Core 1 to supply information on future shipboard operation of the Nuclear Merchant Ship Reactor. Testing of instrumentation equipment shipped to The Babcock and Wilcox Company from New York Shipbuilding Corporation was satisfactory. Correction factors for shipboard use were determined. Fast neutron flux, neutron flux distribution, and stuck control rod studies were carried out successfully, as was a three-dimensional calculation (TKO) to match two critical rod patterns.
