Abstract

the conjugate heat transfer in the clad is also considered. The blockages investigated are internal blockages of different extensions and in different locations: central sub-channel blockage, corner sub-channel blockage, edge sub-channel blockage, one sector blockage, and two-sector blockage. RANS simulations were carried out adopting the ANSYS CFX commercial code with the laminar sublayer resolved by the mesh resolution. The loci of the peak temperatures and their width as predicted by the CFD simulations are used for determining the location of the pin bundle instrumentation. The CFD pre-test analysis allowed also investigating the temperature distribution in the clad to operate the test section safely. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd
