Robert Martin, who worked at INEL in the late 1980s and early 1990s, continues to post interesting information about the activities in reactor safety thermal-hydraulics, and related matters. Bob includes URL links to associated documents, and his articles include more about experiments that I have.

Several of Bob’s articles are related to subjects that are mentioned here at campnrts.blog.
