Title: Natural Convection and Boiling for Cooling SRP Reactors During Loss of Circulation Conditions

This study investigated natural convection and boiling as a means of cooling SRP reactors in the event of a loss of circulation accident. These studies show that single phase natural convection cooling of SRP reactors in shutdown conditions with the present piping geometry is probably not feasible.
