In this paper reactor strategy considerations made by Haefele, Manne and Schikorr are extended. In earlier papers, these authors gave a short review of the work on reactor strategies performed in the sixties, followed by a study on possible options for the future supply of energy. They took into account new functions of known reactor types and proposed one possible reactor strategy that is based on these functions. Special attention was paid to the timing problem. Both, an asymptotic solution to the long range phase and the conditions for the preceding transient phase of the energy problem were considered.

The purpose of this paper is an analysis of the nuclear fuel cycle in the transient phase: The material flows in the nuclear industry as well as the necessary separative work are calculated for the 66 year period under consideration.
