Hazards Report for Step Transient Loading Tests on the SM-1 : Task XII

Description: Abstract: This technical report evaluates hazards involved with SM- 1 plant response and system performance tests (Task XII), to determine the response of the SM-1 plant to step electrical and steam load changes. The report describes the changes in plant equipment and operating procedures for this task and evaluates these changes for possible additional hazards to those described in APAE No. 2, Revision 1, "Hazards Summary Report for the Army Package Power Reactor SM-1."

Summary Report of Physics Measurements on SM-1 Core I

Description: Abstract: This technical report summarizes all core physics experiments performed on SM-1 Core I and SM-2 Rearranged and Spiked Core I throughout core life. These measurements were obtained on site during the 16.4 MWYR lifetime of SM-1 Core I and 1.6 MWYR lifetime of SM-1 Rearranged and Spiked Core I. SM-1 Core I was the first stainless steel - UO2 dispersion core to burn out in the Army Nuclear Power Program. Experimental techniques are described and a complete history of fuel movements in th… more

Hazards Report for SM-1 Core Temperature and Flow Instrumentation (Task XIV) Covering Special Test Procedures.

Description: Abstract: Test procedures for special tests involving in-core SM-1 temperature and flow instrumentation are described (Task XIV Package Tests). These tests involve in-core steady state flow and temperature measurements, loss of flow transients, load transients, reduced primary system pressure operations and reduced element flow. The thermal and hydraulic conditions prevailing in these tests, including steady state and transient burnout rations, are developed. The effects of reduced system pres… more
