PFR/TREAT CO1 and LO1 experiments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The CO1 and LO1 TREAT experiments were the first two in a series of international fast-reator safety experiments to be conducted as part of the PFR/TREAT program being performed by the US and the UK. Conditions for these two experiments simulated a large fast-reactor hypothetical 5$/second (150 ms period) transient overpower (TOP) accident. The CO1 configuration was a single fuel pin in a NaK filled capsule while LO1 used a seven-pin bundle in a flowing-sodium loop. The fuel pins in both experiments had no prior irradiation and represented the PFR driver fuel. The CO1 and LO1 experiments were performed on ... continued below

Description

The CO1 and LO1 TREAT experiments were the first two in a series of international fast-reator safety experiments to be conducted as part of the PFR/TREAT program being performed by the US and the UK. Conditions for these two experiments simulated a large fast-reactor hypothetical 5$/second (150 ms period) transient overpower (TOP) accident. The CO1 configuration was a single fuel pin in a NaK filled capsule while LO1 used a seven-pin bundle in a flowing-sodium loop. The fuel pins in both experiments had no prior irradiation and represented the PFR driver fuel. The CO1 and LO1 experiments were performed on November 5 and November 24, 1980, respectively. This paper describes the objectives, test articles, experimental approach, and the major observations. Post-transient examination results and fuel-failure modeling studies are also presented.
