Material Property Assessment and Data Gap Analysis for the Prospective Materials for Molten Salt Reactors—Research and Development
This review of the scientific literature characterized the designs of proposed concepts for molten salt nuclear reactors and the material degradation processes associated with each design.
This study evaluated the availability and readiness of data and nuclear fuel cycle simulation tools to model the performance of liquid-fueled molten salt nuclear reactors.
This technology assessment of the liquid-fluoride thorium nuclear reactor includes design description, preliminary analysis of process hazards, and determination of technology readiness for key systems and components. This molten salt reactor design is a significant departure from today’s dominant commercial light water reactor technology.
