Flow transients in CLIRA and TSMDA

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From joint meeting of the American Nuclear Society and the Atomic Industrial Forum and Nuclear Energy Exhibition; San Francisco, California, USA (11 Nov 1973). The capability of the Closed Loop In-Reactor Assembly (CLIRA) in FFTF to accommodate various postulated events is demonstrated. These events include, in their order of severity, (a) flow coastdown, (b) inlet pipe break, and (c) inlet blockage. All of these accidents are extremely unlikely, nonetheless the consequences of even the most severe flow-transient accident is shown to cause no failure propagation to the reactor, even if a Test Section Meltdown Accident (TSMDA) should result.
