|Abstract:||Multi-purpose high-power Research Reactors have been designed and constructed popularly in the late 1980s, as in that period the nuclear science applications for peaceful purposes were widely expanded and the reactors dedicated only for each specific purpose such as for nuclear fuel and material testing, tests of nuclear safety, production of radioisotopes, neutron beam utilization, nuclear education and training, etc. can not meet in a comprehensive manner, while many countries, especially the developing countries were facing with difficulties to build and operate some reactors at the same time for different purposes. Based on the results obtained from review of the major characteristics of a number of the world’s existing advanced high-power multi-purpose research reactors and their utilizations, this paper presents a brief of typical applications which are in high demand and implemented effectively on the multi-purpose research reactors with the power levels of from 10 MWt to 30 MWt and the maximum neutron flux in the reactor core from 1x1014 n.cm-2.s-1. The 500-kWt Dalat Nuclear Research Reactor (DNRR) has been safely operated and effectively utilized during the last 30 years. However, due to the limitations of its capacity coming from its low power level and out-of-date design of the experimental facilities, it can not meet the research and application requirements of the country of over 90 million population as Vietnam. For those reasons the project for construction of a new multi-purpose research reactor with a power level of about 10-15 MWt is necessary for Vietnam in long-term vision up to next 50 years. The requirements on technical parameters and proposed application areas of the new research reactor are also given and discussed in this paper, from which the need of the construction of the new multipurpose research reactor for Vietnam that is expected to put into operation in 2025 will be further clarified.|
