GENERAL DESCRIPTION AND OPERATING INFORMATION FOR EXPERIMENTS 5 AND 7 IN THE ORR PRESSURIZED-WATER LOOP

Analysis is presented of nonsintered fuel rods irradiated in the A-1 and A-2 pressurized-water loop concurrently. Fuel specimens, assembled in clusters of three, were fabricated primarily by fused-and-ground uranium dioxide; the cold swaged method was also utilized. Predicted loop performance characteristics (including temperature, enthalpy, density, velocity, and friction factor) for both experiments are presented for nominal and scram conditions.
