Abstract: The Replacement Research Reactor (RRR) will be built by INVAP at the Lucas Heights Science and Technology Centre of the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, located 35km South-West of the Sydney Central Business District, Australia. The RRR is a multipurpose facility for radioisotope production, irradiation services and neutron beam research. The reactor thermal power is 20MW and its compact core is designed to achieve high performance in the production of neutrons. The facility comprises several buildings - Reactor Building, Neutron Guide Building, Offices and Visitor Centre Building, Auxiliary Building, Reactor Facitliy Substation and Cooling Towers - among which the reactor building stands out. The reactor building contains all the nuclear systems and the reactor and service pools. It protects the reactor from all external events and also provides the stuctural basis for the reactor containment. The building is built of reinforced concrete, it is seismically qualified, and it has a metallic grillage for protection from light aircraft crash.
