Critical experimentation requirements such as variability of geometry and thermal hydraulic parameters  were translated into design requirements

Test Reeactor Design

ASME certified quality assurance

Fabrication of Test Vessel

Specialized lifting and rigging engineering services were provided to handle the critical upending of the test reactor.

Experimental reactors require complex thermal hydraulic loops with parameter variability to allow parametric studies

We run experiments at actual post-accident temperature and pressure to avoid scaling from lab to prototype conditions./
