Thermal and Hydraulic Design of the Consolidated Edison Thorium Reactor

Description: This report presents the thermal and hydraulic analyses, both steady state and transient, for the CETR. Methods of calculations are discussed and results of analyses are presented. Steady state analyses are included for: pressure drops, flow distribution, orificing, burnout, fuel central melting, local boiling, and bulk boiling. Transient analyses are performed for several loss of forced coolant flow incidents.

Transient Flow Performance in a Multi-Loop Nuclear Reactor System

Description: The method present can be used to determine fluid flow and coolant pump speed transients in a nuclear reactor system. Included are transients due to power failure, starting pumps in idle loops, and the opening of an active pump's discharge. Parallel pumps in the system may be analysed independently of each other. Typical cases are presented for the N.S. Savannah (NMSR) and Consolidated Edison Thorium Reactor (CETR).
