.... In particular, to evaluate the performance of MORET for local flux or power density calculations in full size reactor cores, it has been decided to contribute to the computational benchmark proposed by Dr. Hoogenboom and Dr. Martin at the ANS M&C 2009 conference. The aim of this benchmark is to monitor...

... control adjustments and accompanying field performance tests just to verify a single specified operating point. A methodology is proposed in this paper for which it is postulated that only a single field test point needs to be obtained within a flow-pressure target window of ±3% of the specified flow...

Paper No: POWER2007-22110
.... With fans, it is now commonplace to put performance guarantees in place when purchasing new equipment which specify volume flow, pressure requirements and expectations for efficiency or power that have to be met. Test procedures suitable for conducting fan performance guarantee tests are available in many...
