Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
6931090 Method of establishing a nuclear reactor core fuel assembly loading pattern August 16, 2005
All possible loading patterns for a nuclear reactor core are searched and optimized for compliance with design constraints. The fuel inventory is divided into a few batches according to coarse levels of reactivity. A recursive enumeration process identifies patterns meeting selected core
6801593 Subcritical reactivity measurement method October 5, 2004
A method of monitoring reactivity changes in a nuclear reaction when the nuclear reaction is subcritical. The method controls the parameter of the nuclear reaction that affects reactivity of the reaction to slightly alter the reactivity while monitoring an output of a source range detect
