Wada, Yuki; Le, T. D.; Satou, Akira; Shibamoto, Yasuteru; Yonomoto, Taisuke

Dry-out and rewet for an anticipated transition without scrum (ATWS) become one of the important issues. In order to predict all of these phenomena, it is necessary to cover wide range of thermal-hydraulic condition, and the modeling of precursory cooling is one of the key issues on the prediction. To reveal the precursory cooling phenomena in the rewetting process, rewetting experiment was carried out using a single heater rod in a circular glass pipe with air-water system at atmospheric pressure. Liquid film front thermal and dynamic behaviors were measured by thermocouples and visualization with a high speed camera. To establish a new rewetting model, liquid film flow characteristics including roll wave behavior, and the mass and energy balance of the liquid film at the rewetting front considering effects of sputtering were summarized in this paper.
