Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis presents the assessment of the Multi Application Small Light Water Reactor (MASLWR) containment design during steady-state and transient conditions. The MASLWR project is a joint effort between Idaho National Environmental and Engineering Laboratory (INEEL), NEXANT Bechtel, and Oregon State University. The project is funded under a Nuclear Energy Research Initiative (NERI) grant from the Department of Energy (DOE). The GOTHIC code was used to simulate the full scale prototype and the Oregon State University MASLWR test facility. Detailed models of the full scale prototype and OSU test facility were generated in GOTHIC. GOTHIC condensation heat transfer models produced heat transfer coefficients that vary by an order of magnitude. This had a significant impact on the pressurization rate and peak pressure achieved within containment. A comparison of the GOTHIC calculation results for the full scale prototype and the test facility model shows reasonable agreement with respect to containment pressure trends and safety system mass flow rates.
