Design and Operating Experience of the ESADA Vallecitos Experimental Superheat Reactor (EVESR)

Description: Summary: "The various design features significant to superheat are described for the 12-1/2 MW., 960 psig, 1050° F, steam-cooled, low-enriched, annular-fueled, experimental superheat reactor built by the General Electric Company at the Vallecitos Atomic Power Laboratory. Results obtained during the first six months of full-power operation, on the emergency cooling system, core thermal performance, and pressure vessel temperatures are presented and compared with predictions. Operating experience with over-all reactor system is also discussed."

Pressure Vessel Steel Surveillance Program for General Electric Power Reactors

Description: Abstract: "Pressure vessel steel surveillance programs are performed in nuclear power reactors to provide knowledge of the mechanical properties of the pressure vessel material as neutron irradiation proceeds. A standard surveillance program is described. Design of specimens, capsules, and associated equipment, as well as selection of test material and techniques for special preparation and testing, are discussed."
