Title: Analysis of hypothetical loss-of-control-arm accidents in HIFAR.
Authors: Connolly, JW
Clark, N
Issue Date: Nov-1986
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: The reactor power transient produced in the HIFAR materials testing reactor upon severance of a central coarse control arm connecting rod and the subsequent pivoting of the arm out of the core has been calculated for a range of reactor conditions likely to be encountered in normal operation. It is concluded that as long as the remaining arms of the control arm bank can be relied on to suppress the post power peak oscillations in power the reactor will withstand the consequences of such an accident.
