A gas-cooled reactor (GCR) is a nuclear reactor that uses graphite as a neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant. Although there are many other types of reactor cooled by gas, the terms GCR and to a lesser extent gas cooled reactor are particularly used to refer to this type of reactor.

The GCR was able. Description. This publication reports on the results of a coordinated research project on advances in high temperature gas cooled reactor (HTGR) fuel technology and describes the findings of research activities on coated particle developments.

A review is given of developments in the area of Gas-Cooled Fast Reactors (GCFR) in the period from roughly until During that period, the GCFR concept was expected to increase the breeding gain, the thermal efficiency of a nuclear power plant, and alleviate some of the problems associated with liquid metal coolants.

There are several concepts for breeder reactors; the two main ones are: Reactors with a fast neutron spectrum are called fast breeder reactors (FBR) – these typically utilize uranium as fuel.

Reactors with a thermal neutron spectrum are called thermal breeder reactors – these typically utilize thorium as fuel. Compendium of Post Accident Heat Removal Models for Liquid Metal Cooled Fast Breeder Reactors (European Appl. Res. Rept. Nucl. Sci. Technol. Vol.6, No.) [B.
