3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

For calculation of thermal and hydraulic transients in an open channel core associated with a loss  of coolant flow accident, the programme is a modified version of the WAPD programme CAT.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION:  Equal pressure drop over the core at any height.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The core is assumed to be divided into two regions, the first represents 'average channels' the second represents a small number of 'hot channels'.
