Abstract : The principal difference between the nuclear steam propulsion plant and a plant using organic fuel is the replacement of conventional boilers by a nuclear steam-generating plant (YaPGU). The principal element of the YaPGU is the reactor, designed to obtain energy from nuclear fuel by a self-sustaining, controlled chain reaction of the fission of atomic nuclei of uranium and transuranium elements.
