Integrated Hydrothermodynamic Study of Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulics and Hydrology in the Small Computer Age


The results of hydrothermodynamic analyses and computer models discussed in previous papers are combined to present an integrated study supporting a request for alternative thermal limits at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant. The hydrothermodynamic studies focused on providing the biologists with support information on general reservoir characteristics, near field temperatures (both frequency and duration) and far field effects. The hydrothermodynamic studies also provided results for an economic evaluation of a change in limits. The combined study supported the request for a maximum temperature limit of 90 degree F and a maximum temperature rise limit of 10 degree F.
