Thermionic and driver fuel elements in an in‐core heat pipe cooled reactor will reject heat to a surrounding array of redundant heat pipes. Such structures present a formidable fabrication problem if approached conventionally through assembly of tubular structures. A reasonable method for fabrication of such reactor cores is described in this study. The technique selected involves the use of hot isostatic processing to minimize the amount of material in heat pipe walls, maximize available vapor flow cross sectional area and provide accurate location of fuel elements.
