The UWMAK series of reactor studies have assessed the technological problems associated with the design and construction of a working power reactor. A procedure has been developed to evaluate the quality of magnet design by a comparison to a minimum mass system established by the virial theorem. Failure and fault analyses and material selection for the many diverse environments are critical for long term reliability. Overall structural compatibility and multipurpose use of structural components are also emphasized.
