Özet

This study analyzed main reactor parameters such as vapor production possibility, explosion chamber volume, equilibrium pressure-temperature, and neutronic behavior of a PACER (peaceful nuclear explosive reactor) producing electrical energy by means of repetitive explosions during certain periods for different values of coolant zone position (DR) and coolant zone thickness (DRc) with enough tritium breeding and more fusion energy absorption. Flibe (Li2BeF4) with different volume fractions is preferred as a coolant. In addition, the flibe inlet temperatures were selected as T-in = 823 K and 1540 K.
