Analysis of fuel behavior during reactivity initiated accidents

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An analysis of fuel rod behavior during reactivity initiated accidents is presented. The calculational approach is described, predictions are discussed and compared to data from the SPERT power excursion tests, and the sensitivity of maximum cladding temperatures to initial reactor conditions, enthalpy insertions, and other experiment design parameters is investigated. 10 references.
