Abstract: Concentric tubular reactor fuel element geometries to give equal coolant outlet temperatures are presented. Oscillations from tube to tube in thickness and temperatures generally occur but it is possible to eliminate them by choice of the centre element. This may be a fuel rod or a non-heat—producing rod with or without a surrounding annulus of fuel. The geometries and temperatures are dependent on the voidage and on a non-dimensional parameter equivalent to a Biot number based on the channel equivalent diameter.
