A case of total power loss and pump stoppage in the STARFIRE fusion reactor has been analyzed with the ATHENA computer code. The computed results indicate total flow stagnation in 200 s, complete evaporation of water in the secondary side of steam generators in 40 s, continued high pressure in the system, and gradual heatup of all neutron multipliers to their melting point in 70 min.
