Nuclear Power Engineering Corporation (NUPEC) conducted thermal-hydraulic projects for verification of thermal-hydraulic design reliability for BWR high-burnup 8×8 and 9×9 fuel assemblies, entrusted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI). As a part of the NUPEC thermal-hydraulic projects, post boiling transition (post-BT) tests by the use of full-scale test assemblies simulating 9×9 fuel were carried out to evaluate BWR fuel integrity. Two kinds of post-BT tests, the steady-state post-BT test and transient post-BT test were performed, and the test results were applied to development of new heat transfer and rewet correlations for the estimation of fuel rod surface temperature.
