ANTICIPATED CORE LIFE - A MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR
The optimum core life for minimum operating cost is discussed in terms of the following four factors: 1) Intervals between each ship inspection and survey including reactor inspection, 2) Availability of refuelling and related equipment, 3) Capacity factor of reactor determined by ship service plan and, 4) Technical restriction influences by core design parameters such as core power density and reactivity control. Results from four studies are summarized.
