Abstract or Summary
  • Oregon State University has recently conducted a complete core conversion analysis as part of the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors Pprogram. The goals of the thermal hydraulic analyses were to calculate natural circulation flow rates, coolant temperatures and fuel temperatures as a function of core power for both the Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) and Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) cores; for steady state and pulsed operation, calculate peak values of fuel temperature, cladding temperature, surface heat flux as well as critical heat flux ratio (CHFR) and temperature profiles in hot channel for both the HEU and LEU cores; finally, perform accident analyses for the accident scenarios identified in the Oregon State TRIGA® Reactor (OSTR) Safety Analysis Report (SAR). RELAP5-3D Version 2.4.2 was used for all computational modeling during the thermal hydraulics analysis. This is a lumped parameter code forcing engineering assumptions to be made during the analysis. A single hot channel model’s results are compared to that produced from more refined two and eight channel models in order to identify variations in thermal hydraulic characteristics as a function of spatial refinement.
