Roadmap for the Development of ASME Code Rules for High Temperature Gas Reactors (in publication)
This ASME publication provides guidance (a roadmap) for the development of a complete set of rules for Nuclear High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactors (HTGRs) to cover new construction and in-service inspection. The guidance provides recommendations for R&D, code committee organization and code structure It is anticipated that operation and maintenance requirements for HTGRs will be covered by a new set of rules or by modifications to existing ASME OM Code. These are not covered in detail in the Roadmap.
