A thermo-fluid model for a Iiquid metal reactor has been implemented on a finite element code with the purpose of investigating three-dimensional profiles of pressure, velocity and temperature fields. All the sub-channel details in the core are summarized in parametric coefficients. The core fields are coupled with the upper and lower plenum where the standard Navier-Stokes system with turbulence model equations is solved. Some preliminary tests for generic geometries with open and closed assembly model are reported.

Abstract

A thermo-fluid model for a Iiquid metal reactor has been implemented on a finite element code with the purpose of investigating three-dimensional profiles of pressure, velocity and temperature fields. All the sub-channel details in the core are summarized in parametric coefficients. The core fields are coupled with the upper and lower plenum where the standard Navier-Stokes system with turbulence model equations is solved. Some preliminary tests for generic geometries with open and closed assembly model are reported.
