Numerical analysis of flow-induced vibration of large diameter pipe with short elbow

Takaya, Shigeru; Fujisaki, Tatsuya*; Tanaka, Masaaki

Flow-induced vibration (FIV) of a hot-leg piping is one of main concerns in the design of an advanced loop-type sodium cooled fast reactor. We have been developing numerical analysis models to deal with this issue. In this study, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation of a 1/3 scaled-model of the hot-leg piping was conducted. The results such as velocity profiles and power spectral densities (PSD) of pressure fluctuations were compared with experiment ones. The simulated PSD of pressure fluctuation at the recirculation region agreed well with the experiment. Then, stress induced by FIV was evaluated using pressure fluctuation data calculated by the CFD simulation. The calculated stress generally agrees well the measurement values, which indicates the importance of precise evaluation of the PSD of pressure fluctuation at the recirculation region for evaluation of FIV of the hot-leg piping with a short elbow.
