3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

The LOFT Integral Test Facility is a scale model of a LPWR. The intent of the facility is to model the nuclear, thermal-hydraulic phenomena which would take place in a LPWR during a LOCA.  The general philosophy in scaling coolant volumes and flow areas in LOFT was to use the ratio of the LOFT core [50 MW(t)] to a typical LPWR core [3000 MW(t)].  For some components, this factor is not applied; however, it is used as extensively as practical.  In general, components used in LOFT are similar in design to those of a LPWR.  Because of scaling and component design, the LOFT LOCA is expected to closely model a LPWR LOCA.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

This experiment was the second of the NRC L2 Series of nuclear large Break LOCA experiments, and was conducted on 12 May 1979. It simulated a 100% cold leg break with a maximum heat generation of 39 kW/m.
