Neutronic and Thermal-Hydraulic Modeling of an Inverted Stable Salt Reactor

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

The safety of traditional nuclear reactors is dependent on constant cooling. The Inverted Stable Salt Reactor (ISSR) design can reduce the dependency on coolant circulation, decrease economic costs, reduce nuclear waste stockpiles, and reduce the need for active supervision. The goal of this research is to determine the viability for the ISSR design to self-regulate its temperature by producing natural convection currents in a bulk fuel container.
