      I recently published an article featuring a video from the Army Nuclear Power Program that focused on the Army’s mobile, low power closed cycle nitrogen cooled nuclear reactor designated the ML The article generated a good discussion that indicated a strong desire for more information about the program.   Commercial gas cooled reactors are currently in use only in the United Kingdom. International interest in developing high temperature gas cooled reactors is increasing because they can provide efficient and cost effective electricity and produce high-temperature process heat usable for various industrial applications.

      This article was first published in the Politics and Policy section of Physics Today.. The Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy (NE) is unlikely to fulfill its mission of developing and demonstrating one or two advanced nuclear reactor technologies by mid-century, according to a new review of the program. The Advanced Gas Reactor (AGR) represents the generation II of British Gas-Cooled Reactors, developed from the earlier generation I Magnox reactor design (see “Magnox Design” on page 7) of gas-cooled reactors. In the UK there are currently seven AGR nuclear power stations (5 in England and 2 in Scotland) each with two operating reactors.

Energy Systems Programs Department.; United States. Department of. An Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor is a type of nuclear reactor designed and operated in the United Kingdom.

These are the second generation of British gas-cooled reactors, using graphite as the neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant. They have been the backbone of the UK's nuclear generation fleet since the s.

The AGR was developed from the Magnox reactor, the UK's first-generation reactor design. In that context, the CSNI established the Task Group on Advanced Reactor Experimental Facilities (TAREF) in with the objective of providing an overview of facilities suitable for performing safety research relevant to gas-cooled reactors and sodium fast reactors.

Using a combination of computational tools and more advanced analytical techniques will greatly accelerate research over past advanced reactor material development programs. Challenges in the development of nuclear fuels.

You are here. At the heart of a nuclear power plant is the reactor. The fuel assembly is placed inside a reactor vessel where all the nuclear reactions occur to produce the heat and steam used for power generation. A gas-cooled reactor (GCR) is a nuclear reactor that uses graphite as a neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant.

Although 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.an overview of materials issues for current and advanced nuclear reactor designs.
