Re: [cdn-nucl-l] Positive Void Reactivity EC6 and CANDU 6
As far as safety in CANDU re: postive void... well, you're preaching to the choir... for example, I had a nice discussion with an instructor at EPRI a few weeks ago and he was suprised to learn what a difference a few orders of magnitude in neutron lifetime makes...
My question, however, was geared toward LICENSING in CANDU re: positive void. And, more specifically, new build CANDU's.
Even if you can prove something is safe, doesn't mean the CNSC will let you build it if it's against "the rules".

Andrew: Read the two papers on this subject in the Proceedings of the June 2009 CNS conference.
The safety issue of positive void in CANDU is CLOSED. It never was really an issue, but it took some work to prove this fact.
