Two ADS conceptual configurations for disposing of the MAs fuels using the mobile fuel concept are developed. The reactor primary coolant systems use bundle coolant tubes passing through the subcritical core. Physics analyses and heat transfer analyses were iterated to adjust coolant tube positions so that the design requirements are satisfied.
