- Predicted performance during both steady state and transient reactor operation determines the steady state operating limits on LMFBRs. Unnecessary conservatism in performance predictions will not contribute to safety, but will restrict the reactor to more conservative, less economical steady state operation. The most general method for reducing analytical conservatism in LMFBR's without compromising safety is to develop, validate and apply more sophisticated computer models to the limiting performance analyses. The purpose of the on-going Natural Circulation Verification Program (NCVP) is to develop and validate computer codes to analyze natural circulation transients in LMFBRs, and thus, replace unnecessary analytical conservatism with demonstrated calculational capability.
