Recalculation of sodium voiding ramp rates in a loss-of-flow accident for a model of a 4000-MW(e) oxide-fueled liquid-metal fast breeder reactor gave results much lower than those found previously by Bleiweis et al. Only a part of this difference could be ascribed to differences in the primary coolant loop model.
