A set of scaling laws is derived for the small-scale simulation of the air clearing phase of a loss-of-coolant accident in a nuclear powerplant with a water-type pressure suppression system. The laws are a refinement of those suggested by F. J. Moody. This paper discusses the assumptions underlying their derivation and deals with the problem of scaling the vent flow.
