Survey and evaluation of FFTF instrumentation for systems code validation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

FFTF instrumentation and preoperational tests are examined here to determine whether the proposed tests and associated instrumentation can provide relevant information needed for verification of systems codes such as SSC. Details of both the in-core and out-of-core instrumentations are studied and their accuracy examined. From a series of multichannel core calculations, the temperatures in instrumented subassemblies were correlated with temperatures in uninstrumented subassemblies. It is found that FFTF can furnish relevant steady-state data at different core conditions for use in systems code validation. The two FOTA channels will provide the most valuable in-core data. However, the FFTF natural circulation tests ... continued below

It is found that FFTF can furnish relevant steady-state data at different core conditions for use in systems code validation. The two FOTA channels will provide the most valuable in-core data. However, the FFTF natural circulation tests should be considered as only one of a series of experiments necessary to validate a large systems code.
