Description: Results of an analysis to determine the extent of displacement of the EGCR core due to blowdown in case of several postulated hot main gas coolant pipe failures are summarized. Results show that the core will be damaged for ary hot pipe double-ended failure. Excepting the improbable case of no coolant flow existing prior to the break, the core will be damaged for any hot pipe fracture exposing a total flow area to the atmosphere equal to that of one pipe. Smaller breaks will probably be safe in this respect. (auth)
