Abstract

Advanced research reactor (ARR) concepts are presently being developed in order to meet the neutron based research needs of the 1990's. The typical ARR design with an average power density above 1 MW per liter relies on the availability of advanced two- and three-dimensional multigroup neutron transport codes and requires new approaches to certain safety problems. The paper reviews present designs and their reactor physics aspects, and defines a number of unresolved safety issues.
