The present paper reviews R&D needs foreseen for advanced fast reactor development. The focus is on physics, safety and fuel validation needs using experimental facilities, i.e. critical zero power facilities or irradiation reactors. This review underlines the crucial need for a continuous availability of such facilities in the next decades. As for the fuel to be used in the experiments the need is for plutonium fuelled experiments and no specific need for HEU seems to be foreseen. However, the already existi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
