Abstract The high-flux advanced neutron application reactor (HANARO) is a 30-MW(thermal) research reactor of an open-tank-in-pool type. Its core consists of 23 hexagonal and 8 circular flow tubes. Thirty-six-element fuel bundles are loaded inside the hexagonal flow tubes, and 18-element fuel bundles are inside the circular ones. The additional four 18-element fuel bundle sites in the reflector adjacent to the core are reserved. For regulation and safe shutdown, respectively, there are four control absorber rods (CARs) and four shutoff rods (SORs) made of natural hafnium shrouds. Each of them encloses the circular flow tube. The fuel is 20 wt% enriched U{sub 3}Si-Al and 700 mm long. The HANARO is now undergoing a nuclear commissioning test.
