Development of unstructured mesh-based numerical method for sodium-water reaction phenomenon

Uchibori, Akihiro; Watanabe, Akira*; Takata, Takashi; Ohshima, Hiroyuki

Nuclear Technology, 205(1-2), p.119 - 127, 2019/01

 Percentile:100(Nuclear Science & Technology)

To evaluate a sodium-water reaction phenomenon in a steam generator of sodium-cooled fast reactors, a computational fluid dynamics code SERAPHIM, in which a compressible multicomponent multiphase flow with sodium-water chemical reaction is computed, has been developed. The original SERAPHIM code is based on the difference method. In this study, unstructured mesh-based numerical method was developed to advance a numerical accuracy for the complex-shaped domain including multiple heat transfer tubes. Numerical analysis of an underexpanded jet experiment was performed as part of validation of the unstructured mesh-based numerical method. The calculated pressure profile and location of the Mach disk showed good agreement with the experimental data. Applicability of the numerical method for the actual situation was confirmed through the analysis of water vapor discharging into liquid sodium.

Numerical study on effect of pressure on behavior of bubble coalescence by using CMFD simulation

Ono, Ayako; Suzuki, Takayuki*; Yoshida, Hiroyuki

Proceedings of 26th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE-26) (Internet), 6 Pages, 2018/07

The mechanism of critical heat flux (CHF) for higher system pressure remains to be clarified, even though it is important to evaluate the CHF for the light water reactor (LWR) which is operated under the high pressure condition. In this study, the process of bubble coalescence was simulated by using a computational multi-fluid dynamics (CMFD) simulation code TPFIT under various system pressure in order to investigate the behavior of bubbles as a basic study. The growth of bubbles was simulated by blowing of vapor from a tiny orifice simulating bubble bottom. One or four orifices were located on the bottom surface in this simulation study. The numerical simulations were conducted by varying the pressure and temperature.

The effect of use of the unstructured mesh was also investigated by the two analyses using structured and unstructured mesh.

Numerical analysis of interfacial growth and deformation in horizontal stratified two-phase flow by lattice Boltzmann method

Ebihara, Kenichi

JAERI-Research 2005-004, 121 Pages, 2005/03

JAERI-Research-2005-004.pdf:19.79MB

This report is the JAERI's report version of the doctor thesis by the author. In this report, first, the validity and usefulness of the application of the two-phase fluid model of the lattice-gas method and the lattice Boltzmann method(LBM) are examined. On the basis of the examination, next, the horizontal stratified two-phase flow that is the fundamental and important flow is simulated by the HCZ model which is one of the two-phase fluid model of the LBM. It is seen that the interfacial growth of the HCZ model satisfies the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability theory and reproduces the theoretical two-phase flow regime map of Taitel and Dukler(T-D map). It is found that more superficial flow velocity of the rare phase is necessary in the channel with the narrow width. The HCZ model can also simulate the droplet generation accompanying more complex interfacial phenomena and reproduce the experimental correlation of Ishii and Grolmes in the range of the distribution of the experimental data.

Numerical simulation of the interfacial growth of the stratified wa vytwo-phase flow in the horizontal rectangular channel

Ebihara, Kenichi; Watanabe, Tadashi

Proceedings of 2004 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE '04) (CD-ROM), 9 Pages, 2004/11

This paper describes the numerical simulation of the interfacial growth of the stratified wavy two-phase flow in the horizontal rectangular channel. The influence of the channel width upon the growth of the interfacial wave was evaluated by the several simulations for the different channel width. The numerical simulation model adopted in this paper is a one-component two-phase fluid model of the lattice Boltzmann method. The wave growth was observed and the dimensionless numbers that characterize the two-phase flow state were measured during the computations. The relation between the wave growth and the dimensionless numbers, which characterize the flow state, was compared with that in the flow pattern map proposed by Taitel and Dukler. It was verified in the case of the wide channel width that the simulated relation was almost in agreement with that in the flow pattern map. It was shown that the narrower the channel width became, the more mass flow rate of the rare phase the interfacial growth needed and the obtained relation deviated from that in the flow pattern map.

Study on interfacial growth and deformation of horizontal stratified two-phase flow by lattice Boltzmann method

In this thesis, first the liquid-gas models of the lattice method are examined by applying them to two-phase flow simulations. Next the liquid-gas model(the HCZ model) of the lattice Boltzmann method is applied to the three-dimensional simulation of the horizontal stratified two-phase flow. The following results are obtained. (1)The two- and three- dimensional interface simulated by the HCZ model satisfies the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability theory. (2)In the simulation of the interfacial growth in the rectangular channel, it is found that the relation between the interfacial growth and the flow state is in agreement with the flow regime map proposed theoretically by Taitel and Dukler. (3)It is also found that the three dimensionality becomes remarkable and the interfacial growth needs more flow rate of the rare phase than that of the theoretical flow regime map when the channel width is narrower. (4)In the droplet creation simulation, it is found that the relation between the droplet creation and the flow state simulates the experimental correlation proposed by Ishii and Grolmes.

Evaluation of influence of pipe width on interfacial growth of horizontal stratified two-phase flow in rectangular pipe by lattice Boltzmann method

Ebihara, Kenichi; Watanabe, Tadashi

The horizontal stratified two-phase flow in the rectangular pipe whose width in smaller than the height is simulated by the one-component two-phase lattice Boltzmann method. The interfacial growth between two phases is measured for three cases with the different pipe width and the measured dimensionless number charactering the two-phase flow is compared with the flow regime map proposed by Taitel and Dukler. It is found that the boundary separating the interfacical growth from the non-growth which is obtained by the simulations is larger in the flow regime map when the pipe width is narrower.
