Title: Reactor safety research programs. Quarterly report, July 1--September 30, 1978. [BWR; PWR]

Abstract

Progress is summarized in the following LWR safety-related studies: (1) ultimate heat sink performance measurements; (2) graphite nondestructive testing; (3) integration of nondestructive examination reliability and fracture mechanics; (4) acoustic emission-flaw relationship for in-service monitoring of pressure vessels; (5) experimental verification of steady state codes: ex-reactor determination of thermal gap and contact conductance, and irradiation results; (6) fuel subassembly procurement and irradiation test program; (7) steam generator tube integrity; and (8) core thermal model development.
