Title: Final Project Report on RCCS Testing with Air-based NSTF

Abstract

The following report serves as a comprehensive summary of the air-based portion of the Natural convection Shutdown heat removal Test Facility (NSTF) program at Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne). Initiated in 2005 to generate validation data for the Next Generation Nuclear Plant (NGNP), the project was centered on an experimental testing program to study the behavior and bound the performance of Reactor Cavity Cooling System (RCCS) concepts. Parallel modeling and simulation efforts also have been performed to guide the design, fabrication, and operation of NSTF, as well as to assess the suitability of analysis methods for natural convection systems. The program operates under support from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Advanced Reactor Technologies (ART), and maintained compliance with NQA-1 2008 with 2009a in both administrative and technical portions of program activities.
