- The paper provides a brief overview of the Loss-of-Fluid Test (LOFT) Facility, a review of the key results from LOCA tests performed to date, and plans for the future of LOFT, as an introduction to the more specific information about LOFT fuel that is to follow. The purpose of the LOFT tests is to provide data for assessing the accuracy of the analytical models used in evaluating the safety of commercial nuclear power plants. While the main purpose of LOFT is to investigate phenomena important to the loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA), the 55 MWt LOFT reactor system has been scaled to commercial power reactors and heavily instrumented so that information on fuel and system behavior over a range of normal and off-normal conditions can be obtained.
