||

+ | < *By definition of 10CFR50.46(c)(2), "An evaluation model is the calculational framework for evaluating the behavior of the reactor system during a postulated loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA). It includes one or i more computer programs and all other information necessary for application of the calculational framework to a specific LOCA, such as nethematical models used, assumptions included in the programs, procedure for treating the program input and output information, specificatloa of those portions of analysis not included in computer programs, values of parameters, and all other information necessary to specify the calculational procedure." |
||

+ | **Further, per 10CFR50.46(c)(1) LOCA's are hypothetical accidents that would result from the loss of reactor coolant, at a rate in excess of the capability of the reactor coolant makeup system, from breaks in pipes in the reactor coolant pressure boundary up to and including a break equivalent in size to the double-ended rupture of the largest pipe in the reactor coolant system. |

||

+ | Method of ComDliance: |
||

+ | The power level used in the ECCS analysis is dif f erer.t f or each plant analyzed. The values are given in Table 15.6 of the 5atety Analysis Report (SAR) for each plant. The power level and peaking factor used comply with the above requirements. |

The steady-state temperature distribution and stored energy in the fuel before the hypothetical accident shall be calculated for the burn-up that yields the highest calculated cladding temperature (or optionally, the highest calculated stored energy). To accomplish this, the thermal conductivity of the U02 shall be evaluated as a function of burn-up and temperature, taking into consideration differences in initial' density, and the thermal conductance of the gap between the UO .and the cladding shall be evaluated as a function of the burn-up, taking into consideration fuel densification and expansion, the composition and pressure of the gases within the fuel rod, the initial cold gap dimension with its tolerances, and cladding creep. |

For rods whose cladding is calculated to rupture during the LOCA, the inside of the cladding shall also be assumed to react after the rupture. The calculation of the reaction rate on the inside of the cladding shall also follow the Baker-Just equation, starting at the time when the cladding is |

Once the transient begins, the secondary side heat transfer will remain in a boiling mode or will become either natural circulation or forced circulation depending on the steam generator secondary circulation flow and the tube wall temperature. |
||

I. REQUIRED AND ACCEPTABLE FEATURES OF THE EVALUATION MODELS*

3 A. SOURCES OF HEAT DURING THE LOCA

< *By definition of 10CFR50.46(c)(2), "An evaluation model is the calculational framework for evaluating the behavior of the reactor system during a postulated loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA). It includes one or i more computer programs and all other information necessary for application of the calculational framework to a specific LOCA, such as nethematical models used, assumptions included in the programs, procedure for treating the program input and output information, specificatloa of those portions of analysis not included in computer programs, values of parameters, and all other information necessary to specify the calculational procedure."

- Further, per 10CFR50.46(c)(1) LOCA's are hypothetical accidents that would result from the loss of reactor coolant, at a rate in excess of the capability of the reactor coolant makeup system, from breaks in pipes in the reactor coolant pressure boundary up to and including a break equivalent in size to the double-ended rupture of the largest pipe in the reactor coolant system.

I 7889B:10/111385 11-1 1

Attachmant 1 Page 2 of 25 For the heat sources listed in paragraphs 1 to 4 below, it shall be assumed that the reactor has been operating continuously at a power level at least 1.02 times the licensed power level (to allow for such uncertainties as instrumentation error), with the maximum peaking factor allowed by the technical specifications.

Method of ComDliance:

The power level used in the ECCS analysis is dif f erer.t f or each plant analyzed. The values are given in Table 15.6 of the 5atety Analysis Report (SAR) for each plant. The power level and peaking factor used comply with the above requirements.

ADDendiX K Requirement:

A range of power distribution shapes and peaking factors representing power distributions that may occur over the core lifetime shall be studied and the one selected should be that which results in the most severe calculated consequences, for the spectrum of postulated breaks and single failures analyzed.

Method of ComDliance:

a., C ,0.

ADDendiX K Requirement:

- 1. The Initial Stored Enerav in the Fuel. The steady-state temperature distribution and stored energy in the fuel before the hypothetical accident shall be calculated for the burn-up that yields the highest calculated cladding temperature (or optionally, the highest calculated stored energy). To accomplish this, the thermal conductivity of the U02 shall be evaluated as a function of burn-up and temperature, taking into consideration differences in initial' density, and the thermal conductance of the gap between the UO .and the cladding shall be evaluated as a function of the burn-up, taking into consideration fuel densification and expansion, the composition and pressure of the gases within the fuel rod, the initial cold gap dimension with its tolerances, and cladding creep.

7889B:10/111365 11-2

..= a Attachment 1 Page 3 of 25

- 2. Fission Heat. Fission heat shall be calculated using reactivity reactor kinetics. Shutdown reactivities resulting from temperatures and voids shall be given their minimum plausible values, including allowance for uncertainties, for the range of power distribution shapes and peaking factors indicated to be studied above. Rod trip )

i and insertion may be assumed if they are calculated to occur. l 1

- 3. Decay of Actinides. The heat from the radioactive decay of l

~

actinides, including neptunium and plutonium generated during !

operation, as well as isotopes of uranium, shall be calculated in accordance with fuel cycle calculation and known radioa:tive properties. The actinide deca: heat chosen shall be that appropriate for the time in the fuel cycle that yielos tne nignest calculated f uel temperature during the LOCA.

- 4. Fission Product Decay. The heat generation rates from radioactive decay of fission products shall be assumed to be equal to l.2 times the values for infinite operating time in the ANS Standard (Proposed American Nuclear Society Standards- " Decay Energy Release Rates Following Shutdown of Uranium-Fueled Thermal Reactors".

Approved by Subcomittee ANS-5, ANS Standards Comittee, October 1971). The fraction of the locally generated gama energy that is deposited in the fuel (including the cladding) may be different from 1.0; the value used shall be justified by a suitable calculation.

- 5. Metal-Water Reaction Rate. The rate of energy release, hydrogen-generation, and cladding oxidation from the metal / water reaction shall be calculated using the Baker-Just equation (Baker L., Just, L.

C., " Studies of Metal Water Reactions at High Temperatures, III.

Experimental and Theoretical Studies of the Zirconium-Water Reaction," ANL-6548, page 7, May 1962) . The reaction shall be assumed not to be steam limited. For rods whose cladding is calculated to rupture during the LOCA, the inside of the cladding shall also be assumed to react after the rupture. The calculation of the reaction rate on the inside of the cladding shall also follow the Baker-Just equation, starting at the time when the cladding is

. calculated to rut *.ar.. and ext r din; e._nc the cladding inner circumference and axially no less than 1.5 inches eacn way from the location of the rupture, with the reaction assumed not to be steam limited.

Method of Compliance:

Anoendix K Reauirement:

- 6. Reactor Internals Heat Transfer. Heat transf er f rom piping, vessel walls, and nonfuel internal hardware shall be taken into account.

Method of Compliance:

COBRA-TRAC models the heat transfer from internal structures to the fluid using a one-dimensional conduction formulation as shown in Volume 1 of the COBRA-TRAC manual ( }. Temperature dependent material properties are accounted for as well as any internal resistances or gaps. The heat transfer on the surfaces can range between single phase liquid or vapor to nucleate boiling, depending upon the wall temperature and the flow regime present. All the structural material in a node is accounted for such that the prcper metal heat release is calculated.

Anoendix K Reauirement: l

- 7. Pressurized Water Reactor Primary-to-Secondary Hea* Transfer.

Heat transferred between primary and secondary systems through heat exchangers (steam generators) shall be taken into account. (Not 1 applicable t:: Boiling Water Reactors.)

9 Method of Compliance:

The steam generator model, STGEN, for COBRA-TRAC is described in Volume 3 of the COBRA-TRAC manual (5) , and is a loop component from the TRAC-PD2 code (6) . The steam generator primary side and secondary side hydrodynamics are treated separately with the heat transfer coupling between the two sides.

7889B:10/111385 11-4

0 t Attachment 1 Page 5 of 25 ;

The initial steady-state heat transfer on the secondary side is forced convection and nucleate boiling while the primary side heat transfer is forced convection. Once the transient begins, the secondary side heat transfer will remain in a boiling mode or will become either natural circulation or forced circulation depending on the steam generator secondary circulation flow and the tube wall temperature.

The primary side heat transfer depends on the flow regime in the steam generator tubes as well as the calculated primary side surface temperature.

The selection logic is shown in Figure 1 f rom Volume 1 of the COBRA-TRAC manual (5) ,[

- a. , C, e Apperidix K Requirement:

B. SWELLING AND RUPTURE OF THE CLADDING AND FUEL ROD THERMAL PARAMETERS Each evaluation model shall include a provision for predicting cladding swelling and rupture from consideration of the axial temperature distribution of the cladding and from the difference in

~

pressure betwecq the inside a.d cutt'de of tFa cladding, both as f unctic:.. of tic.e. Tc De acceptable toe swe;iir.g and rupture calculations shall be based on applicable data in,such a way that the degree of swelling and incidence of rupture are not underestimated.

The degree of swelling and rupture shall be taken into account in calculations of gap conductance, cladding oxidation and embrittlement, and hydrogen generation.

The calculations of fuel and cladding temperatures as a function of time shall use values for gap conductance and other thermal parameters as functions of temperature and other applicable time-dependent variables. The gap conductance shall be varied in accordance with changes in gap dimension and any other applicable variables.
