Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon State University has conducted research in collaboration with TerraPower, LLC, to perform a top-down scaling analysis of an integrated test facility. The goal of this facility is to simulate transient and quasi-steady phenomena at a reduced scale, including steady-state operation, pump coastdown, natural circulation, reactor head heat transfer, and coolant stratification. To support this goal, this thesis presents the methodology and analysis by which approximate facility dimensions were generated. This analysis includes implementation of the hierarchical two-tiered scaling methodology, as outlined by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and optimization through the general reduced gradient methodology.
