Improvement and verification of fast reactor safety analysis techniques. Progress report, September 1, 1975--November 31, 1975

Description

A number of improvements and refinements have been made to the VENUS-II analysis of the KIWI-TNT experiment. The final calculations for this study are now being performed. Areas of difference that appeared during the initial VENUS- II/PAD intercomparison study have been investigated and largely resolved. In particular, the treatment of the energy-of-vaporization was examined and found not to have a significant effect on the calculated temperatures. The next round of comparison calculations are currently underway. A study aimed at comparing and evaluating different methods of characterizing work-energy or damage- potential of core-disruptive accidents has been initiated.
