REVIEW OF INVESTIGATIONS PERTINENT TO THE PREDICTION OF THE THERMAL BEHAVIOR OF FAST REACTORS UNDER ABNORMAL OPERATING CONDITIONS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Results are summarized for a survey of methods for predicting fuel element and coolant behavior in sodiumcooled fast reactors under abnormal operating conditions. Circumstances prior to, during, and after meltdown are considered, and the behavior of fuel and coolant during transients is discussed. Reactor excursions, theory of fuel element thermal transients, reactor coolant transients in single and two-phase flows, and specific topics such as two-phase flow patterns, two-phase pressure drop, and transient voids in boiling coolant reactors are also treated. Some applicable mathematical treatments are given along with an annotated bibliography. (D.L.C.)
