Abstract : A fluidic throttling flow controller for controlling core cooling flow in a nuclear reactor. Increased temperature of cooling flow adjacent the core increases the flow adjacent the core and is used to control a focused jet amplifier which in turn controls a vortex valve to reduce flow and shut down the reactor when overheating occurs.
