Experimental investigation of bubbling in particle beds with high solid holdup

The current experiments were conducted under two dimensional (2D) and three dimensional (3D) conditions separately, in which water was used as liquid phase, and bubbles were generated by injecting nitrogen gas from the bottom of the viewing tank. Various particle-bed parameters were varied, including particle-bed height (from 30 mm to 200 mm), particle diameter (from 0.4 mm to 6 mm) and particle type (beads made of acrylic, glass, alumina and zirconia). Under these experimental conditions, three kinds of bubbling behavior were observed for the first time using digital image analysis methods that were further verified by quantitative detailed analysis of bubbling properties including surface bubbling frequency and surface bubble size under both 2D and 3D conditions.

Experimental study of bubble behavior in a two-dimensional particle bed with high solid holdup

Proceedings of 18th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE-18) (CD-ROM), 8 Pages, 2010/05

A series of experiments on bubble behavior in a particle bed was performed to clarify three-phase flow dynamics in debris bed, which is essential in heat-removal capability, under coolant boiling conditions. The current experiment was conducted in a 2D tank. Water was used as liquid phase, while bubbles were generated by injecting nitrogen gas from the bottom of the tank. Various experimental parameters were taken, including different particle bed height, various particle diameter, different particle type, and different nitrogen gas flow rate. By using digital image analysis method, three kinds of bubble rise behavior were observed under current experimental conditions and confirmed by the quantitative detailed analysis of bubble rise properties including bubble departure frequency and bubble departure size.

Criteria for occurrence of self-leveling in the debris bed

Zhang, B.*; Harada, Tetsushi*; Hirahara, Daisuke*; Matsumoto, Tatsuya*; Morita, Koji*; Fukuda, Kenji*; Yamano, Hidemasa; Suzuki, Toru; Tobita, Yoshiharu

Proceedings of 13th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-13) (CD-ROM), 15 Pages, 2009/09

Although the decay heat from fuel debris drives the coolant boiling in fast reactor accident conditions, the present experiments were conducted by employing depressurization boiling of water to simulate axially increasing void distribution in a debris bed instead of conventional heating or gas injection from the debris bottom. Good agreements on self-leveling occurrence were obtained between model predictions and experimental results. Extrapolation of the present model was also discussed against reactor conditions.

Experimental study of self-leveling behavior in debris bed

Proceedings of 6th Japan-Korea Symposium on Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics and Safety (NTHAS-6) (USB Flash Drive), 8 Pages, 2008/11

In the present study, characteristics of self-leveling behaviors were investigated experimentally with simulant materials. The present experiments employed depressurization boiling of water to simulate axially increasing void distribution in a debris bed, which consists of solid particles of alumina or lead with different density. The particle size (from 0.5 mm to 6 mm in diameter) and shape (spherical or non-spherical particles) were also taken as experimental parameters. A rough criteria for self-leveling occurrence is proposed and compared with the experimental results.
