(PDF) Concept of an Accelerator-Driven Advanced Nuclear Energy System
This is that chinese ASDR concept using solid micrograins as a pumpable solid coolant that doubles as the neutron spallation target for the particle accelerator. Apparently there were concerns over the thermal shock from a beam trip event requiring a more robust neutron target.

The TRISO pebbles are immobilized inside the thick walls of a graphite tube with graphite powder, but one would worry about TRISO pebble shifting/settling within the powder area.

GE"s 1961 podded marine nuclear propulsion pod, using a marinized variant of their airborne nuclear powerplant, using a closed loop neon gas loop running through the turboshaft, cooled by seawater heat exchangers. Modernize this as a double ended electric azipod and you have something interesting.

Internet could lower its cooling bills by using hot water
Interesting that they use high temperature coolant, in an effort to cool to ambient temperature rather than forcefully chill the coolant below ambient, as a kind of economizer.

Basically a water cooled sheet with an external heater/cooler that tries to keep a specific temperature (feedback loop), rather than a brute force electric blanket.

Per Peterson on Pebble Bed Reactors Status
PB-AHTR, an evolutionary step for the PBMR, using liquid fluoride coolant rather than a PBMR/VHTR helium coolant. Though it ends up running through a heat exchanger into a helium brayton circuit for the turbines. If you're using a secondary circuit, why not move up to a supercritical CO2 turbine plant instead (maybe there is a radioactivity or reactivity issues between the liquid fluoride primary loop and CO2 secondary loop?

This would help to demonstrate a lot of tech for a LFTR setup though
