Abstract : The McMaster Nuclear Reactor is a conventional pool-type research reactor. The reactor is currently licensed to operate at a maximum power level of one megawatt. The design power level is five megawatts. However, cooling capacity has been installed for only one megawatt. The reactor is fueled with 18 plate MTR type fuel elements. Each standard fuel element contains approximately 196 grams of U235 at 93% by weight enrichment.
