Abstract

This chapter specifically discusses the design experience of Japan’s prototype FR, Monju, as an example of the FR system design discussed in previous chapters. Any actual project will be subject to a number of nontechnological constraints by people and society. Consequently, the project will often not proceed as described in the previous chapters, and this will necessitate a certain amount of trial and error and judgment. The goal of this chapter is to convey actual experience to the next generation of engineers.
