Description: A description of the TREAT facility is presented. The static characteristics of the reactor which pertain to its dynamic behavior, such as temperature coefficient and prompt-neutron lifetime, are discussed. Also considered are other phenomena, the analyses of which provide some measure of the general adequacy of the calculational techniques employed. The correlation and analysts of transientexperiment results on this clean-geometry reactor are examined in considerable detail. In addition, an extrapolation of the reactor's performance beyond the present low design limitation of 400 deg C maximum local temperatare is included. (auth)
