This paper lays out the procedure for arriving at the dimensions of a model facility to simulate a pressure tube type reactor. The Advanced Heavy Water Reactor, whose design is being evolved in the Indian scenario, is used as a basis for the evolution of the model facility. The non-dimensional groups that need to be preserved are identified and the design is evolved by satisfying these non-dimensional groups. The inevitable distortions that get introduced are discussed and a suitable compensation procedure evolved. Finally, the evolved model is shown to satisfy both steady state and characteristic equation similarity.
