It is a finished and well timed textual content on multiphase circulate and warmth move for a nuclear engineer and people who have an interest in nuclear reactor protection overview, to have an image of what should be happending in nuclear energy vegetation less than twist of fate stipulations, together with hypothetical middle meltdown occasions. it really is useful given that a majority of these who run reactor-safety desktop codes would not have strong grip on phenomenological realizing and versions which shaped the spine of those codes. With admire to serious injuries, the writer made an amazing try to transcend the mundane of empiricism, yet phenomena are too advanced and there are too huge uncertainties that by some means reduces the worth of targeted modeling of specific strategies. wisdom won thus far in simulant-materials and small-scale experiments no longer unavoidably presents the sufficient photo of what may perhaps occur in reality.Especially considering the fact that often, measurements have been oblique and versions are speculative. hence a feeling of warning is suggested to seem at the back of equations and conscious of the place and the way they have been derived or stipulations within which correlations have been received.

A large range of tests was performed from the early 1 970s to 1 986 in the various versions of the semiscale facility that were built. They included small and large breaks, steam generator tube rupture, natural circulation, power­ loss transients, and station blackout events.

Was sensitivity to system computer code nodalization minimized in pre­ dicting the test results and the performance of the prototype complex system? Were enough independent or blind predictions carried out to validate the system computer codes ability to predict the tests, in particular the component and integral system tests? Was the uncertainty with which the system computer code calculates important parameters reasonably established? How well were the biases accounted for, and how well were the uncertainties combined?

It could not have been implemented without the extensive testing results and improvements in system computer codes that happened from 1 974 to 1 988 and which are summarized in Reference [ 1 . l . 12] .
