Model development for bubble turbulent diffusion and bubble diameter in large vertical pipes

Onuki, Akira; Akimoto, Hajime

Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, 38(12), p.1074 - 1080, 2001/12

Multi-dimensional analyses have been expected recently with expanding computation resources for gas-liquid two-phase flow analyses of advanced nuclear systems such as passive safety systems and natural-circulation-type reactors. However, the applicability of previous constitutive equations for multi-dimensional analyses has not been fully investigated especially for the effects of flow path scale because the equations have been assessed for small-scale experiments. In this study, we analyzed the scale effects by the multi-dimensional two-fluid model code using data in 38 mm and 200 mm diameter pipes. We clarified a key-parameter to model the scale effects and developed models for the effects on phase distribution. The scale effects can be classified by the relative relationship between bubble diameter db and turbulent length scale lT. Bubble-induced turbulence is increased under that db is smaller than lT and bubble coalescence is predominated rather than breakup under that lT is about three times larger than db and under higher void fraction. Based on these findings, we established new models for bubble turbulent diffusion and bubble diameter. The applicability was promising through assessments against the 38 mm and 200 mm pipes under different flow rates and against a database for developing flow along 480 mm pipe.

Verification of models for bubble turbulent diffusion and bubble diameter in multi-dimensional two-fluid model

Onuki, Akira; Akimoto, Hajime

Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Flow Modeling and Turbulence Measurements (FMTM2001) (CD-ROM), 7 Pages, 2001/12

Multi-dimensional analyses have been expected with expanding computation resources for gas-liquid two-phase flow. We recently developed models for bubble turbulent diffusion and bubble diameter to predict the phase distribution by a multi-dimensional two-fluid model. This study was performed to verify our model. The verification was performed using databases under diameter; 9 mm to 155 mm, pressure; atmospheric to 4.9 MPa, flow rate; superficial gas velocity = 0.01 to 5.5 m/s and superficial liquid one = 0.0 to 4.3 m/s, fluid combination; air-water or steam-water. Through the assessments, our model was found to be applicable to the wide range of flow conditions including the effect of pipe diameter. The shape of phase distribution and the average void fraction are predicted well qualitatively and quantitatively. Since the model is established using the ratio of bubble diameter to eddy size as a key-parameter, the ratio is one of important parameters to develop the constitutive equations in the multi-dimensional two-fluid model.
