Title: Mark I 1/5-scale boiling water reactor pressure suppression experiment summary of effects due to vent line orifice variations: air test series

Abstract

Twenty-seven air tests have been completed in the /sup 1///sub 5/-scale Mark I test facility. The observed effects of vent line orifice variations on the hydrodynamic vertical load function (HVLF) are presented. The conditions for standard tests, to which the orifice variation tests are compared, are defined and discussed. These tests used the ''standard'' or 9.5 inch orifices in the 90/sup 0/ sector vent lines.
