- Changes in perspectives on fast reactor safety have occurred over the past ten years due both to technical progress and to the course of events. The major aspect of these changes is that they relate to basic design decisions that are largely, but not exclusively, related to safety considerations. Among the topics discussed are inherent safety, choice of fuel between metal and oxide, choice of reactor configuration between pool and loop, impact of size on safety characteristics and modularity, containment options, and treatment of the hypothetical core disruptive accident.
