Numerical study on effect of nucleation site density on behavior of bubble coalescence by using CMFD simulation code TPFIT

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

Proceedings of 12th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal-Hydraulics, Operation and Safety (NUTHOS-12) (USB Flash Drive), 9 Pages, 2018/10

The mechanism of Critical Heat Flux (CHF) remains to be clarified, even though it is important to evaluate the CHF for super high heat flux components such as light water reactors (LWRs). Some theoretical models to predict the CHF is proposed so far. A macrolayer formation model which is proposed in order to predict the CHF based on the macrolayer dryout model. In this model, it is assumed that the liquid is captured inside vapor mass at coalescence. In this study, the verification of the assumption of a macrolayer formation model by the numerical simulation of CMFD code, TPFIT, from the view point of hydrodynamics.

Macrolayer formation model for prediction of critical heat flux in saturated and subcooled pool boiling

no journal, , 

A macrolayer formation model for saturated and subcooled pool boiling is proposed, which is developed based on the visual observation of boiling behavior. The distribution of nucleation sites is assumed to distribute based on Poisson distribution. The predicted macrolayer thicknesses are used for the prediction of CHFs in saturated and subcooled pool boiling based on the macrolayer dryout model. The combination of the macrolayer dryout model and macrolayer formation model is able to predict the CHF well at least up to subcooling 40K.
