A summary of the major considerations in the design of LMFBR core restraint systems is presented. A discussion of these considerations is given using the design features and environment of the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Plant core restraint system design. A comparison of core restraint performance with an alternate concept is provided. Conclusions are drawn on the direction of current and future core restraint system designs.
