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… more

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."

Prediction of the Critical Heat Flux in Forced Convection Flow

Description: From summary: "A superposition model is developed to predict the critical heat flux in forced convection flow. The model is applied to available experimental results in boiling water flows and good agreement is obtained between the model and test data over the multitude of geometries, flow rates, pressures, and fluid enthalpies tested to-date."
