Differential pressure analysis for ventilation filter by smoke under fire accident with CELVA-1D

In a part of building ventilating installation of a nuclear fuel facility, a reprocessing plant for example, the pre-filters are adopted as one of the ventilation filters. In a fire accident, it is supposed that, because of the pre-filter clogging by large smoke, its differential pressure ($$Delta$$p) is evolved up to the value at its breakage. Therefore, in regard to maintaining the confinement of radioactive materials, it is important to predict the time course of $$Delta$$p of the pre-filter accurately. In the current study, it was assumed that the empirical equation for the DF of the pre-filter as function of smoke particle diameter (SPD), between 0.7-2 $$mu$$m, could be applied to estimating its DF for SPD above 2 $$mu$$m. Under this assumption, the time corresponding to its $$Delta$$p at its breakage, calculated by CELVA-1D, was agreed well with the experimental result.
