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.
