Title: Final Project Report on Computational Modeling and Analysis of Air-Based NSTF

Abstract

The Reactor Cavity Cooling System (RCCS) is a passive safety concept under consideration for the overall safety strategy of advanced reactors such as the High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor (HTGR). The air-cooled RCCS uses natural convection to drive the flow of air from outside the power plant to remove decay heat during normal operation and accident scenarios. The Natural convection Shutdown heat removal Test Facility (NSTF) at Argonne National Laboratory (“Argonne”) is a ½ - scale model of the primary features of one conceptual air-cooled RCCS design. The NSTF program performs ex-vessel, passive heat removal experiments in support of Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy’s Advanced Reactor Technology (ART) program.
