THERMAL AND HYDRAULIC DESIGN OF THE CONSOLIDATED EDISON THORIUM REACTOR

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

ABS>The thermal and hydraulic analyses, both steady state and transient for the CETR are presented. Methods of calculations are discussed and results of analyses are presented. Steady-state analyses are included for pressure drops, flow distribution, orificing, burnout, fuel and burnout cannot occur at any attainable reactor power in the CETR as designed. Bulk boiling of the coolant does not occur at any point in the core during normal steadystate operation. Bulk boiling is permitted during transients because very few fuel channels are involved and the resulting effects on over-all reactor performance are small. Local boiling of the coolant may occur ... continued below

Description

ABS>The thermal and hydraulic analyses, both steady state and transient for the CETR are presented. Methods of calculations are discussed and results of analyses are presented. Steady-state analyses are included for pressure drops, flow distribution, orificing, burnout, fuel and burnout cannot occur at any attainable reactor power in the CETR as designed. Bulk boiling of the coolant does not occur at any point in the core during normal steadystate operation. Bulk boiling is permitted during transients because very few fuel channels are involved and the resulting effects on over-all reactor performance are small. Local boiling of the coolant may occur in the reactor during normal steady-state operation and has no appreciable effect on reactor operation except a slight increase in friction pressure drop. The heat-transfer characteristics of the core are actually improved. The hydraulic transient analyses show that no risk of core damage exists for the total loss of forced coolant flow from either maximum or minimum initial flow conditions. (auth)
