3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED:  Calculates the fuel-cycle cost of a nuclear power reactor.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The whole fuel-cycle is taken into account in a  very detailed manner, and also all its modifications during the life of the power reactor. Application of the present worth method to the cost flow and energy production schedules results in obtaining the mean specific fuel-cycle cost for a given constant load factor.
