Abstract or Summary
  • A recent review of nuclear reactor emergency core cooling systems has required renewed investigations into the present knowledge of experiments which have measured after-heat. Of special interest are some experiments which were performed after Shure's 1961 evaluation, upon which the American Nuclear Society (ANS) recommended after-heat curves are based. Experiments of the integral beta and gamma measurements were reviewed here. Various experimental methods are outlined and discussed. The results of the experiments were noted and compared with the ANS curves. Also, the experimental errors involved were investigated; the errors were attributed to specific techniques and procedures associated with each experiment. An experiment in "thought" was carried out for gamma measurements in order to obtain the most optimistic error estimate.
