. Depends on the reactor. Any one of them in particular?

no. just a fission reactor.
I have a notion there's lead and heavy water involved in the construction as well, what I'm wondering is if you're planning on building one or breaking one...

does it matter? i just need to know how many meters thick the case for the reactor is.
