Preliminary analysis of an integral small modular reactor operating in a submerged containment

Progress in Nuclear Energy
Publication date
This journal article describes a scaled version of the International Reactor Innovative and Secure (IRIS) small modular reactor design. A numerical model of the design of this submerged reactor indicates efficient heat transfer and unique safety features that protect against Fukushima-like scenarios such as loss of offsite power or loss of ultimate heat sink.
