ZHENG WENXIANG;WANG DAZHONG(Institute of Nuclear Energy Technology,Tsinghua University)
Based on the specific conditions of the nuclear heat applicat ions and the development objec-tives of the advanced reactors,the nuclear heating reactor(NHR)exploited in China has adheredto the new safety concepts and been designed with a number of advanced features, including theintegrated arrangement, full powper natural circulation capacity,self- pressurized performance,dynamically- hydraulic control rod drive and passive safety systems, so that higher standard ofsafety as well as simplification in the plant systems and improvement in economic viability hasbeen achieved.This paper describes the special consideration in the design as well as the main design featuresand safety concepts of the NHR. Some experimental and analytical results are also presented here-in to demonstrate the NHR safety features.
