  • The collaborative development of an optimised cavity/cryomodule solution for application on ERL facilities has now progressed to final assembly and testing of the cavity string components and their subsequent cryomodule integration. This paper outlines the verification of the various cryomodule sub-components and details the processes utilised forfinal cavity string integration. The paper also describes the modifications needed to facilitate this new cryomodule installation and ultimate operation on the ALICE facility at Daresbury Laboratory.
  • Worth measurements of Eu$sub 2$O$sub 3$ and B$sub 4$C have been made at the location of a peripheral shim rod, of a control rod, and of a safety rod in the Engineering Mockup Critical (EMC) Assembly of the Fast Test Reactor (FTR). The worths were measured as a function of the volume fraction of control material in the rods over a range from 4 to 32 percent. The measurements indicate that europia is approximately equivalent to natural boron carbide on a reactivity worth per unit volume basis. Calculation of the worths and comparison with the experimental results have also beenmore » performed. (auth)« less
  • A series of power ramp and loss-of-coolant accidents were simulated with an electrically heated mockup of a Savannah River Site production reactor assembly. The one-to-one scale mockup had full multichannel annular geometry in its heated section in addition to prototypical inlet and outlet endfitting hardware. Power levels causing void generation and flow instability in the water coolant flowing through the mockup were found under different transient and quasi-steady state test conditions. A reasonably sharp boundary between initial operating powers leading to or not leading to flow instability were found: that being 0.2 MW or less on power levels of 4more » to 6.3 MW. Void generation occurred before, but close to, the point of flow instability. The data were taken in support of the Savannah River reactor limits program and will be used in continuing code benchmarking efforts. 6 refs., 12 figs., 2 tabs.« less
