Abstract

The results of the IAEA activities in support of the development of fast neutron systems with heavy liquid metal coolants (HLMC) are illustrated by the materials of the International Conference on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycles, 46th meeting of the IAEA Technical Working Group on Fast Reactors (both in 2013) and other technical meetings on reactors and accelerator-driven system (ADS). Nuclear Energy Series “Liquid Metal Coolants for Fast Reactors” was published in 2012. Report “Status of ADS Research and Technology Development” is near completion. The IAEA has concluded in 2010 Coordinated Research Project devoted to ADS Benchmark Analyses.
