WHAT IS AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER

CONFIGURATION

Catapult-assisted take-off but arrested-recovery (CATOBAR) Short take-off but arrested-recovery (STOBAR) Short take-off vertical-landing (STOVL)

Helicopter Carrier

LAND BASED REACTORS & NAVAL REACTORS: DIFFERENCE

The power of land based reactors is in the range of 3,000 MW; In contrast, a submarine reactors power is smaller in the range of the hundreds of MW
Land based systems use uranium fuel enriched to the 3-5 percent range; Highly enriched fuel at the 9397 percent level is used in naval reactors. Naval Reactors use only Pressurized Water Reactors.

COMPOSITION OF ENRICHED FUEL

REACTOR CONTAINMENT

There exists a multitude of naval reactor designs.


Because of the weight of the power plant and shielding, the reactor and associated steam generation equipment is located at the centre of the ship. Watertight bulkheads isolating the reactor components surround it.

The greater part of the system is housed in a steel containment, preventing any leakage of steam to the atmosphere in case of an accident.

The containment vessel can withstand a pressure of 13 atm.(Savannah design)

SECONDARY SHIELDING
The secondary shielding consists of concrete, lead, and polyethylene and is positioned at the top of the containment . A pre-stressed concrete wall with a thickness of 122 cm surrounds the lower section of the containment. This wall rests on a steel cushion. The upper section of the secondary shielding is 15.2 cm of lead to absorb gamma radiation, and 15.2 cm of polyethylene to slow down any neutrons. The space between the lead plates is filled with lead wool.

The lead used in the shielding is cast by a special method preventing the formation of voids and in homogeneities.

NEED FOR NUCLEAR POWERED AIRCRAFT CAREER IN INDIA


The mission of the aircraft carrier force is to provide a credible, sustainable, independent forward presence and a conventional deterrence in peace times.
In times of crisis, it operates as the cornerstone of joint and/or allied maritime expeditionary forces. It operates and support air attacks on enemies, protects friendly forces and engages in sustained independent operations in times of war.

Presently deployed aircraft carriers run on heavy diesel engines. They are smaller in size, less powerful, more fuel consumptive and need constant resupplying.
