Title: EBR-II inherent shutdown and heat removal tests: a survey of test results

Abstract

An experimental study of inherently safe characteristics of LMFBR systems is being conducted in EBR-II. Experiments have been conducted which show (1) capabilities of heat removal without the aid of active safety systems and (2) capabilities to mitigate a reduction in-core cooling flow or heat rejection to the balance of plant (BOP) without aid of active control or protection systems. Experiments involving loss of forced reactor cooling flow and loss of all heat rejection to the BOP are planned to be conducted. Purpose of this paper is to summarize the result of the test program by presenting representative test data.
