Projects of High-Temperature Nuclear Reactors

(Overview. Part 2) / Augstas Temperatūras Kodolreaktoru Projekti

Open access

Part 2 of the overview gives emphasis to the projects of high-temperature NRs, whose development is an area of active engagement for the specialists from the USA, France, Japan, Russia, China, the Netherlands, and Germany. Projects of several powerful NRs of the HTGR type for commercial use had been worked out in the USA and Germany already by 1970 but not yet implemented.
