Physical characteristics of large fast-neutron sodium-cooled reactors with advanced nitride and metallic fuels

Mixed nitride uranium–plutonium fuel is the most attractive and advanced type of fuel for fast-neutron sodium-cooled reactors, and is considered as the base fuel for future commercial fast-neutron power reactors. However, a substantial increase in breeding achieved thanks to the use of this fuel ins...
