A preliminary concept for a gravity flow test facility was evaluated
using mathematical modeling techniques. Complete specifications for the
hydrodynamic performance were not available. In the absence of these
values, parametric studies were carried out to determine the sensitivity of
flow quality indicators to dimensional changes. The target flow conditions
in a circular test section with a 4 sq ft area were a 90 second test run
at a constant velocity of 60 fps.
