Very high temperature gas-cooled reactor. A very high temperature gas-cooled reactor (VHTR) is an inherently safe reactor that can produce heat of °C–°C. By virtue of its high temperature heat, a VHTR can be used in high-temperature process heat applications, including hydrogen production and high-efficiency electricity generation.

The book is intended for researchers and engineers involved with nuclear engineering and energy technology. It introduces the power plants driven by modular high temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTR), which are characterized by their inherent safety features and high output temperatures.

Introduction Thermodynamic Cycle High Temperature Requirements Historical Background A gas-cooled reactor (GCR) is a nuclear reactor that uses graphite as a neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as gh there are many other types of reactor cooled by gas, the terms GCR and to a lesser extent gas cooled reactor are particularly used to refer to this type of reactor.

The GCR was able to use natural uranium as fuel, enabling the countries that developed them to. HAYNES and alloys are competing for use on Generation IV, high temperature gas cooled reactor components because of their good high temperature creep strength in the temperature range of °C and °C and resistance to attack in the gas cooled reactor : Michael Katcher, Dwaine L.
