Title

Mass optimization studies of reactivity control schemes and radiation shielding options for space nuclear reactors

Abstract

"Launching mass into space is very expensive, and minimization of the mass of space-bound components is critical. This thesis studies mass optimization schemes for two key components of space nuclear reactors - the external reactivity control system and the radiation shield"--Abstract, leaf iii.
