The main aim of this paper is to solve the technological problems of the TWR based on the technical concept described in our priority of invention reference [1], which makes it impossible, in particular, for the fuel claddings damaging doses of fast neutrons to excess the 200 dpa limit. Thus the essence of the technical concept is to provide a given neutron flux at the fuel claddings by setting the appropriate speed of the fuel motion relative to the nuclear burning wave.
The basic design of the fast uranium-plutonium nuclear traveling-wave reactor with a softened neutron spectrum is developed, which solves the problem of the radiation resistance of the fuel claddings material.
