- The BWR Mk 1 1/5 scale drywell volume, including space in all ports up to the first flange, was experimentally determined to be 10.01 m/sup 3/ with an uncertainty of +- 0.03 m/sup 3/. The method of measurement used a 0.040879 m/sup 3/ calibrated volume that was initially filled with helium to 36.5 MPa. The calibrated volume was then connected to the drywell and the pressures equalized. The volumes of the vent pipes, instrumentation ports, and either the steam inlet or nitrogen inlet were subtracted from the measured drywell volume to obtain the net active drywell volume. The net active drywell volume is 9.87 m/sup 3/ for air tests and 9.85 m/sup 3/ for steam tests.
