Fast Breeder Reactors covers the proceedings of the 1966 London Conference on Fast Breeder Reactors, organized by the British Nuclear Energy Society. This conference highlights the technical and commercial aspects of nuclear power. This book is organized into five sections encompassing 37 chapters. The introductory section considers the historical development of British nuclear power technology and its application. This section provides an introduction to the principles of fast breeder reactor. The succeeding sections look into the mode of operation, and the design and physical aspects of prototype fast reactor. These sections also consider the theoretical and experimental works of these reactors in the United States. A description of the irradiation behavior of plutonium-bearing ceramic fuel pins is also included. The concluding section explores the control and instrumentation of the prototype fast reactor. This section specifically evaluates the main engineering equipment and the experimental work carried out in support of the selected designs, and to an explanation of certain problems of sodium technology. The design and experimental works on the main circulating pumps, the intermediate heat exchanger, and the steam generator are also surveyed. This book will prove useful to nuclear physicists, design engineers, and research workers who are interested in nuclear power-related fields.
