Compact Primary Shielding Materials For Small And Medium Reactors

During the last two decades, Small and Medium Reactors (SMRs) have become a major player for future nuclear power generation. There are several projects dedicated to the design and construction of these reactors — for example: NuScale (U.S.A), mPower (B&W, U.S.A), KLT-40S (Russian Federation), SMART (South Korea) and CAREM (Argentine). SMRs are able to provide
