i discovered IC^2 only a couple days ago and instantly got hooked on nuke engineering. I have a leg up in this area since i am an Computer-science professional who focuses on algorithms (pattern recognitio and computation). Something caught my attention in Albaka's post. the comment about being able to design a 2.17 Mark I-EC reactor. Simply put i wanted to do better than that
Aaaand POOF! there you go!
A 2.33(repeating) Mark I-EC reactor (squeak! JUST BARELY GOT HIM!)
3 Uranium Core
36 Cooling Core
15 Heat Distrib
-36/t from Cooling core
-1 from reactor
-12 from reactor chambers
-20 from water (27 aka 3x3x3 - reactor - 6chambers)
2 cores X 2 pulses each x 3 faces each x 2 heat per face = +24/t
1 core X 3 Pulses x 2 faces x 4 heat per face = +24/t
-21 heat diff PER TICK! (HOLY!)
output: 7 ticks ~35eu/t
great care can be taken in the adding and removal of cooling units in exchange for more individual uran rods. This however decreases the efficiency in exchange for immediate power output. (Which wasn't my original objective) if my math sticks and isverified i will begin exploration of it idea of a 50/50 on off clock based Mark II-EB/EA
Now then back to Project Alblaka!
[EDIT]: VICTORY IS MINE! Really! This time i mean it! Verify my math and prove me wrong if i am!
