NON-UNIFORM HEAT GENERATION EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM. Quarterly Progress Report No. 2, September-December 1963
Description: Experimental and analytical investigations are being conducted to determine the effects of irregular heat flow through reactor channels on the operating conditions that cause burnout (departure from nucleate boiling). Time was spent de signing, procuring, fabricating, and formulating plans in preparation for the initial test work. The bus bars, loop piping, and Test Section No. 1 were completed and installed except for the final connections. The primary elements for the instrumentation and control modifications are ready for installation. Considerable effort was expended to obtain a satisfactory supply source for the non-uniform test sections. It appears that the azimuthal variation of heat generation will be between plus or minus 2.5 to 5%. Procedures are being formulated for checking out the equipment and loop modifications prior to test operations. (auth)
