LWR safety experiments in the HFR Petten
In connection with the TMI-2 incident, research programmes have been initiated to investigate the release magnitude after a postulated LOCA, the international "source term effort". Simulated LOCA tests performed out-of-pile at KFA Julich are described. The results obtained are in good agreement with those from TMI-2. The planned ISOLDE in-pile experiment in HFR Petten is presented. Preliminary out-of-pile experiments performed to characterize the experiment facility have been carried out successfully.
