Abstract : The results of a multigroup, diffusion theory study of spherical gaseous-core cavity reactors are presented. The reactor cavity of gaseous U235 is enclosed by a region of drogen gas and is separated from an external D2O moderatorreflector by a zirconium structural shell. Some cylindrical reactors are also investigated. (Author)
