EFFECT OF URANIUM-BEARING SCALE DEPOSITS ON HRE-2 CORE WALL TEMPERATURE, HEAT FLUX, AND PATCH TEMPERATURE
Description: Calculations are presented to show the effect of uraniumbearing scale deposits on the HRE-2 core wall tempera ture, heat flux, and the temperature. of patches proposed for sealing the holes of the HRE-2 core vessel. Flow behavior in the HRE-2 core mockup with simulated patches installed and simulated corrosion pits drilled in the vessel wall was determined. A plausible mechanism was advanced to account for hot spots due to sedimentation of solids on metal surfaces projecting from the core wall. Patch designs with reduced metal projections from the core wall are presented. (auth)
