NS SAVANNAH FUEL DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM. BURN-OUT ANALYSIS

An up-to-date analysis of burn-out in the General Electric core for the N.S. Savannah is added to the fuel design and development program. Sub channel "E" in a centrally located fuel channel in the third pass imposes the most severe burn-out conditions. Burn-out is expected at 3.85 times rated power, the minimum burn-out margin at 25% overpower being 4.39. Consideration also is given to bulk boiling and the rate of constant flow through the control element slots.
