Final Report on Test L4, a Loss-of-Flow Experiment

Final Report on Test L4, a Loss-of-Flow Experiment

Date: December 1976
Creator: Eberhart, James G.; Lo, R. & Barts, E. W.
Description: The behavior of FTR-type, mixed-oxide, pre-irradiated "high-power-structure" fuel during a simulation of an FTR loss-of-flow accident was studied in the Mark-IIA integral TREAT loop. Analysis of the data leads to a postulated scenario (sequence and timing) of events in this test. This scenario is presented, together with the calculated timing of events obtained by use of SAS code.

Design and Fabrication of the EBR-II Environmental Instrumented Subassembly : Test XX07

Design and Fabrication of the EBR-II Environmental Instrumented Subassembly : Test XX07

Date: 1977
Creator: Gillette, J. L.; Ploncsik, J.; Smaardyk, A.; Walker, D. E.; Filewicz, E. C.; Longnecker, A. A. et al.
Description: The EBR-II environmental instrumented subassembly (EISA), or Test XX07, was designed, fabricated, and irradiated to provide in-core measurements of irradiation conditions. This subassembly contained 57 elements with uranium metal-5 wt.% fissium fuel and four non-fueled elements. It was instrumented with two permanent-magnet flowmeters, 13 coolant thermocouples at various axial and radial locations, 10fuel-centerline thermocouples, and two self-powered detectors. The subassembly was irradiated in EBR-II for about 11,600 MWd (-186 days), reaching a peak burnup of about 2.9 at.% During its residence in the reactor, XX07 provided in-core measurements of flow, temperature and flux levels under both steady-state and dynamic conditions.

Design, Construction, and Initial Operation of the ANL Research Salt-Gradient Solar Pond

Design, Construction, and Initial Operation of the ANL Research Salt-Gradient Solar Pond

Date: 1981
Creator: Cha, Y. S.; Sha, W. T. & Hull, J. R.
Description: The design consideration of a 1/4 acre research salt-gradient solar pond is described. Experience learned during the construction of the solar pond is presented. Initial operation of the pond indicates that the construction of the pond is sound and no leakage has occurred. The pond began to warm up during March of 1981. The maximum pond temperature reached 63 C at the end of July and it is still rising. All signs indicate that the operation of the well instrumented pond will be a success and the performance of the pond will be as expected, if not better.

EBR-II Environmental Instrumented Subassembly XX08 : Engineering and Assembly

EBR-II Environmental Instrumented Subassembly XX08 : Engineering and Assembly

Date: May 1978
Creator: Smaardyk, A.; Filewicz, E. C.; Longnecker, A. A.; Poloncsik, J.; Tokar, J. V.; Walker, D. E. et al.
Description: Subassembly XX08 is a fueled and instrumented subassembly designed primarily for an ongoing program to investigate the thermal-hydraulic core environment within EBR-II under normal and off-normal plant operating conditions. XX08 contains 58-xenon-tagged, EBR-II Mark-II driver-fuel elements. The Mark-II fuel is expected to provide XX08 with an irradiation lifetime three times as great as that attained with its predecessor, XX07, i.e., a 9 versus 2.9% burnup. A burnup of 9 at.% is equivalent to about 29,000 MWt dyays of EBR-II reactor operation, which corresponds to 11 reactor runs at 2700 MWd per run.
