The paper discusses special features of the concept of a dried hot prestressed concrete reactor vessel for pool-type liquid-metal cooled fast breeder reactors. In particular, the potentially advantageous feature of removing evaporable water from concrete when it is being kept hot is discussed along with its technological implications.
