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 more than electricity, including seawater desalinization as well as cogeneration power among its applications. Therefore, new projects on its complementary facilities are under development. Protection...
