METHODS TESTING EXPERIMENTS WITH 4% MARTY FUEL

Material is presented on experiments performed to determine the adequacy of methods to be applied in zero power testing of N.S. Savannah Core 1. These tests were performed in a 32 can Marty core with 4% enriched fuel. Included in the experiments were tests of control rod drives, manganese alloy wire as a flux detector, heterogeneous position holddown methods, methods of measuring holddown power of control rods and improved water heating methods. Much of the experimental work was devoted to established limitations and effectiveness of the equipment rather than to absolute measurements.
