Title (EN) MOLTEN FUEL NUCLEAR REACTOR WITH NEUTRON REFLECTING COOLANT
(FR) RÉACTEUR NUCLÉAIRE À COMBUSTIBLE FONDU DOTÉ D'UN LIQUIDE DE REFROIDISSEMENT RÉFLÉCHISSANT LES NEUTRONS
Abstract:
(EN) Configurations of molten fuel salt reactors are described that utilize neutron-reflecting coolants or a combination of primary salt coolants and secondary neutron-reflecting coolants. Further configurations are described that circulate liquid neutron-reflecting material around an reactor core to control the neutronics of the reactor. Furthermore, configurations which use the circulating neutron-reflecting material to actively cool the containment vessel are also described.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des configurations de réacteurs à sel combustible fondu qui utilisent des liquides de refroidissement réfléchissant les neutrons ou une combinaison de sels de refroidissement primaires et de liquides de refroidissement secondaires réfléchissant les neutrons. Il est décrit d'autres configurations qui font circuler une matière liquide réfléchissant les neutrons autour d'un cœur de réacteur pour réguler la neutronique du réacteur. L'invention concerne également des configurations qui utilisent la matière en circulation réfléchissant les neutrons pour refroidir de manière active le récipient de confinement.
