3. DESCRIPTION OF TEST FACILITY

ROSA-IV is a large scale test facility (LSTF) for integral simulation of thermal-hydraulic response of a pressurized water reactor during a small break
loss-of-coolant accident or an operational transient. The facility has electric core heating. The overall scaling factor is 1/48. The hot and cold legs were sized to conserve the volume scaling. The four primary loops of the reference PWR are represented by two equal-volume loops.

4. DESCRIPTION OF TEST

SB-CL-18 was a 5% cold leg break test. Both the initial steady-state conditions and the test procedures were designed to minimize the effects of scaling compromises. 10 seconds into the break, the turbine throttle valve was closed at a pressurizer pressure of 12.97 MPa. The turbine bypass was inactive, since loss-of-offsite power was assumed concurrently with the scram. The reactor coolant pumps stopped at 265 seconds. The core was uncovered between 120 seconds and 155 seconds into the break.
