Abstract A proposal for the design of a pulsing reactor operating on light water and enriched uranium is given in this article, and the method of calculating the physical and thermal parameters of such a reactor are indicated. It is shown that when certain definite conditions are established very stable heat generation during the neutron pulses may be obtained. In the version of a pulsating reactor discussed here, the calculations indicate that it is possible to obtain over 5 Mw power with an average thermal neutron flux greater than 1014 neutrons/cm2 · sec and a maximum neutron flux (during neutron pulse) of approximately 1017 neutrons/cm2 · sec in the reactor core.
