An Analogue Solution of a Reactor Perturbation Initiated by a Metallurgical Phase Transformation of the Fuel
Description: The analysis of a reactor model that is thermally nonlinear is presented. The significant sources of feadback in the closed-loop model ane dilatational changes of the fuel due to axial expansion caused by temperature and metallurgical phase changes. Ths dynamics of this phenomenon has been represented on the Pace electronic analog com puter. The model was subjected to unusually large inputs of sinusoidal power and did not show any drastic tendencies toward being unstable. (auth)
