Hayashi, Hideyuki; Yanagisawa, Tsutomu

The outline of the concept changes of fast reactor designs from the beginning to the present are described, while the current leading concept is sodium cooled MOX fueled. As for the reactor core, the reason of selecting the coolant and the fuel material is mentioned concerning reactor physics and thermal design, such as heat removal capability and material characteristics. As for the reactor structure, the difference between loop type and tank type is mentioned citing past reactor designs and current Japanese design for commercialization.
