Title: Hydrogen Flammability Data And Application To Pwr Loss-Of-Coolant Accident

Supplemental to WAPD-SC-54l. A summary is presented of generalized data on the flammability of hydrogen in steam-air mixtures. The flammability data are applied to a postulated Pressurized Water Reactor loss-of-coolant accident and to estimates of the potential pressure effects on the PWR plant container. (C.H.)
