Validation of three-dimensional finite-volume-particle method for simulation of liquid-liquid mixing flow behavior

Kato, Masatsugu*; Funakoshi, Kanji*; Liu, X.*; Matsumoto, Tatsuya*; Liu, W.*; Morita, Koji*; Kamiyama, Kenji

Computational fluid dynamics based on particle-based simulations with a fully Lagrangian approach is a powerful tool to understand thermal-hydraulic behaviors of multi-component, multi-phase flows involved in disrupted nuclear core during severe accidents. In this study, a validation study of 3D particle-based simulation using the finite volume particle method was performed for mixing flow behavior of two liquid phases with different densities in a pool. Fundamental experiments using water and silicon oil were also carried out for the present validation. An enhanced multi-phase scheme was introduced to provide accurate and stable calculations of multi-phase flows characterized by high density ratios. The simulation results of the experiments were given to demonstrate validity of the present simulation method and enhanced performance for simulations of mixing and separation behaviors of liquid-liquid two-phase flows in the pool.
