Formation of the Radiation Conditions by the Nuclear Reactor of a Power Facility with Direct Energy Conversion
Computational and design studies of the arrangement of an autonomous power unit with a nuclear reaction in a sparsely populated location characterized by weak soil are presented. A variant of a possible arrangement of the reactor taking account of the requirements of the facility is shown. The radioactive emission around the reactor and the distribution of heat emission in the soil, for picking and determining the number of cooling elements, are calculated. A technical solution that provides for the installation of a nuclear reactor in soft ground is proposed.
