RBMK

History The RBMK was the culmination of the Soviet nuclear power program to produce a water-cooled power reactor with dual-use potential based on their graphite-moderated plutonium production military reactors. The first of these, Obninsk AM-1 (Атом Мирный, Atom Mirny, Russian for Atoms for Peace) generated 5 MW of electricity from 30 MW thermal power, and supplied Obninsk from

Radiation Effects in Graphite

Nuclear graphite 3 Nuclear graphite is any grade of graphite, usually electro-graphite, specifically manufactured for use as a moderator or reflector within a nuclear reactor. Graphite is an important material for the construction of both historical and modern nuclear

Cavendish to support AGR graphite inspections

Cavendish Nuclear has signed a five-year, 7.5 million contract to support the continued operation EDF Energy's fleet of Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors in the UK. The agreement includes the provision of specialists and equipment to stations to carry out inspections of the graphite blocks in the reactor cores.

Modelling an Advanced Gas

moderator blocks in a nuclear reactor are subjected to significant temperature and irradiation fluence gradients, and irradiation induced dimensional changes in graphite are both temperature and fluence dependent, these lead to self-induced stresses to be imposed on the blocks.

Graphite Program Assures Regulator of Reactor Safety

Jacobs Selected by Radioactive Waste Management Ltd to Study Radioactivity in Graphite Nuclear Reactor Cores RWM has commissioned Jacobs to measure and characterize releases of the radioactive isotope carbon-14 and compare it with releases from irradiated graphite in earlier reactor types, including the U.K.'s first generation of Magnox civil nuclear power stations.

Characterization, Treatment and Conditioning of Radioactive Graphite from Decommissioning of Nuclear Reactors

2.1.1. Types of graphite-moderated reactor cores The beginning of nuclear power utilization started with the graphite moderated Pile which was built in a squash court at the University of Chicago in 1942. Since then a multitude of designs of graphite moderated

Graphite as a core material for Generation IV nuclear

2017/1/114.1. Introduction Along with the use of carbon-coated uranium oxide fuel articles, the use of graphite as a moderator for Generation IV reactors is attractive because it allows a reactor core to be designed in a way which, in fault conditions, can reach high enough temperatures to allow the "Doppler effect" to come into play which will shut down the reactor.

Study of graphite reactivity worth on well

2016/1/1The BR-1 reactor located at the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCKCEN in Mol (Belgium) (see Wagemans et al., 2009) is an air-cooled reactor with graphite moderator. Since this reactor uses graphite as both reflector and moderator, the graphite/fuel weight ratio is very high.

IET Digital Library: Model

The graphite core is the critical component which dictates the life-time of an AGR (Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor) in a nuclear power station. To ensure the continued safe operation of an AGR nuclear plant, it is vital to closely monitor the condition of its graphite core to maintain its integrity for the economic life of the reactor.

Nuclear graphite blocks in reactor cores

Graphite blocks in nuclear power stations Graphite bricks are used in the core of all of the UK's Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors (AGRs). They act as a moderator, helping to keep the nuclear reaction going, and perform an important safety function.
