lack of consensus among the world researchers on the significance of Po-210 build up in lead cooled reactors. The second objective is to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of selected candidate metal coolants. In addressing both objectives, the computer code ORIGEN was used. To establish the background basis for these assessments, fundamental concepts of reactor physics are reviewed and discussed.
