3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

ROSA-III is a 1/124 scaled down test facility with electrically heated core designed to study the response of engineered safety features to loss-of-coolant accidents in in commercial BWR. It consists of the following, fully instrumented subsystems:
(a) the pressure vessel with a core simulating four half-length fuel assemblies and control rod;
(b) steam line and feed water line, which are independent open loops;
(c) coolant recirculation system, which consists of two loops provided with a recirculation pump and two jet pumps in each loop;
(d) emergency cooling system, including HPCS, LPCS, LPCI, and ADS.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

Run 916 was a 50% split break test at the recirculation pump suction line. A failure of the HPCS diesel generator was assumed. At 190 seconds after the break, a peak cladding temperature of 917 K was reached during the reflooding phase. The full core could be effectively quenched by ECCS.
