- The decay heat removal by a passive air colling system from a modular high tempeature gas cooled reactor during depressurized core heatup accident scenarios was analyzed. The effects of several design and operating parameters on the peak fuel and vessel temperatures were established. The results indicate that fuel and vessel temperatures remain well below failure levels and that significant safety margins exist in the key variables of decay heat and core thermal conductivities.
