The Planar Sandwich and Other 1D Planar Heat Flow Test Problems in ExactPack
Abstract
This report documents the implementation of several related 1D heat flow problems in the verification package ExactPack [1]. In particular, the planar sandwich class defined in Ref. [2], as well as the classes PlanarSandwichHot, PlanarSandwichHalf, and other generalizations of the planar sandwich problem, are defined and documented here. A rather general treatment of 1D heat flow is presented, whose main results have been implemented in the class Rod1D. All planar sandwich classes are derived from the parent class Rod1D.

Closeout of IE Bulletin 8601: Minimum flow logic problems that could disable residual heat removal pumps: Minimum flow logic problems that could disable residual heat removal pumps
Documentation is provided in this report for the closeout of IE Bulletin 8601 regarding minimum flow logic problems that could disable residual heat removal (RHR) pumps in General Electric boiling water reactor facilities (GE/BWRs). Closeout is based on the implementation and verification of four (4) required actions by holders of operating licenses and construction permits of GE/BWR power reactors. Evaluation of responses and NRC/Region inspection reports indicates that the bulletin is closed for all of the 39 affected facilities. Background information is supplied in the Introduction and Appendix A of this report. 
FLUOMEG: a planar finite difference mesh generator for fluid flow problems with parallel boundaries. [In FORTRAN IV]
A two or threedimensional finite difference mesh generator capable of discretizing subrectangular flow regions (planar coordinates) with arbitrarily shaped bottom contours (vertical dimension) was developed. This economical, interactive computer code, written in FORTRAN IV and employing DISSPLA software together with graphics terminal, generates first a planar rectangular grid of variable element density according to the geometry and local kinematic flow patterns of a given fluid flow problem. Then subrectangular areas are deleted to produce canals, tributaries, bays, and the like. For threedimensional problems, arbitrary bathymetric profiles (river beds, channel cross section, ocean shoreline profiles, etc.) are approximated with grid linesmore » 
A NOTE ON THE APPLICATION OF THE HEAT BALANCE INTEGRAL TO PROBLEMS OF NON PLANAR GEOMETRY
The temperature distribution in the region exterior to a cylindrical hole in the infinite space with a boundary that is exposed to a constant heat flux was determined using the integral method with a parabolic profile. The results indicated that the use of the parabolic spatial temperature distribution led to poor agreement with the exact solution. A modified profile was introduced, and was found to lead to better agreement. The analogous problem for the spherical cavity was treated. (auth) 
STEADY STATE, NONBOILING HEAT TRANSFER PERFORMANCE OF THE TEST SYSTEM. CONSTANT HEAT RATE TURBULENT FLAT PLATE AND RECTANGULAR CHANNEL FLOW HEAT TRANSFER TO WATER
Steadystate nonboiling heat transfer data and results are reported for tests on both the visual and xray chamber test sections. Correlation of these results indicates that the mean heat transfer coefficients are conservatively represented by either the turbulent flat plate flow equations or by the Hausen thermal entry length equation for fully developed channel flow. The xray chamber results are, however, about 15 to 20% high, compared with these equations and the results for the visual chamber. (auth)
