The LOFT small break experiment L3-6 has been analyzed as part of Sweden's contribution to the International Thermal-Hydraulic Code Assessment and Applications Program (ICAP).
Three calculations, of which two were sensitivity studies, were carried out. The following quantities were varied:
the content of secondary side fluid and the feed water valve closure
the two-phase characteristics of the main pumps
All three predictions agreed reasonably well with most of the measured data. The sensitivity calculations resulted only in marginal improvements. The predicted and measured data are compared on plots and their differences are quantified over intervals in real time.
