The natural-circulation characteristics and the density-wave stability characteristics of the natural-circulation Freon-12 facility DESIRE for a specific configuration have been determined by systematically performing experiments in the whole operating range. A large amount of data has been gathered to be used for future benchmarking of computer codes for the calculation of boiling water reactor (BWR) stability. Contrary to expectations, it was found that, for low subcooling values, the stability of the facil…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
