Mass optimization studies of reactivity control schemes and radiation shielding options for space nuclear reactors
"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, page iii.
