An improved phenomenological model of annular two-phase flow with high-accuracy dryout prediction capability

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a new phenomenological model of annular two-phase flow with dryout prediction capability, implemented in the CATHARE-3 system code. The model comprises existing correlations for entrainment and deposition rates and a new equation to determine the initial entrained fraction (IEF) of the liquid phase at the onset of annular two-phase flow. The proposed new model allows for a significant reduction of mean error variations with pressure and mass flux, when compared with measured dryout in pipes with internal diameter from 8 to 14.9 mm, system pressure from 3 to 10 MPa, mass flux from 500 to 6000 kg/m2s, test section length from 1 to 7 m, inlet subcooling form 10 to 100 K, and critical heat flux from 0.15 to 3.90 MW/m2. It has been also shown that, at certain conditions, the phenomenological model is unable to provide an accurate prediction, irrespective of the chosen value for the IEF parameter. Such behavior is thoroughly investigated in this paper and seldom addressed in the literature, even though it sets limits on the applicability of the model to dryout predictions.
