Previous reactor physics studies of marine propulsion systems were limited to cores with low average power density (60–65 MW/m3). This project focuses on designing high power density (HPD) cores with power densities comparable to that of Sizewell B (101.6 MW/m3), in order to obtain more compact designs with better economic performance. In this study, detailed neutronic analysis and underlying physics for HPD cores are discussed. Due to the obvious thermal-hydraulic challenges associated with HPD core designs, a coupled neutronic/thermal-hydraulic hot channel (HC) analysis of HPD cases is performed to determine whether TH safety limits are satisfied. These issues will be discussed in this talk as well.

This talk is part of the Methodology in design research series.
