Complete Numerical Simulation of Subcooled Flow Boiling in the Presence of Thermal and Chemical Interactions
At present, guidelines for fuel cycle designs to prevent axial offset anomalies (AOA) in pressurized water reactor (PWR) cores are based on empirical data from several operating reactors. Although the guidelines provide an ad-hoc solution to the problem, a unified approach based on simultaneous modeling of thermal-hydraulics, chemical, and nuclear interactions with vapor generation at the fuel cladding surface does not exist. As a result, the fuel designs are overly constrained with a resultingdoi:10.2172/810307 fatcat:fj2gvwvt55hbhdbidxl67qurhq
