dc.description.abstractA comparison between a computer model of a steam surface condenser and data from a machinery test of a DDG-37 class engineering plant is provided. Using ORCON1, a computer code developed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a comparison between a computer model and actual data was made in an attempt to verify the code. The sensitivities of ORCON1 to changes in inputs were explored to determine the effect of inaccuracies in the data. Results show that, especially at lower steaming rates, ORCON1 provides a fair model of the condenser. A change was made to ORCON1 to account for vapor velocity effects in the condenser. This change improved the correlations between the code's output and the data. Other changes to the code are proposed. Continued attempts to verify ORCON1 and further study in improving the code are recommended.
