Abstract: Nuclear reactors are devices containing fissionable material in sufficient quantity and so arranged as to be capable of maintaining a controlled, self-sustaining NUCLEAR FISSION chain reaction. They are also known as atomic piles, atomic reactors, fission reactors, and nuclear piles, although such names are deprecated. The power level at which a nuclear operates is proportional to the rate of fissions, which in turn , depends on the number of neutrons in the reactor. There fore by controlling the number of neutrons ,we can control the power level of the reactor. Recently, there has been a resurgence in promoting nuclear reactors as a viable and necessary component of technology . The design ,construction and operation of a nuclear reactor are today part of a huge and expanding field of nuclear engineering. [7] , [27]
