Conference paper


Safety and reliability requirements of nuclear reactors are of considerable importance. In this paper, the reliable design and operation of the Emergency Core Cooling System (ECCS) for a heavy water cooled research reactor in the nuclear research center of Vinca (Yugoslavia) is discussed. An investigation was done for a loss of coolant accident (LOCA) with special reference to inlet and outlet pipes of the prime coolant loops.
