Description: Hydraulic and deflection analyses of the unequal flow passages in the HFIR control region revealed excessive pressure differentials. A proposal to drill connecting holes between the flow passages initiated an experimental program for investigating the effectiveness crossflow on pressure equalization. Empirical constants for an analytical model and experimental design data on reduction of pressure differentials between channels were obtained. It was determined that crossflow between channels would satisfactorily reduce the pressure differentials. (auth)
