Abstract [en]

The heat transport in two-layer fluid systems has been investigated numerically for slice-type semicircular pools with internal heat sources. The fixed interface model has been applied to study natural convection in the system of the immiscible fluids. The double-diffusion model has been employed to describe the heat transfer and mixing for the miscible fluids. The numerical results are compared to data measured in the SIMECO experiments. Based on the numerical simulations, the effect of the ratio of the fluid properties has been quantified. The results are of interest for the corium melt coolability in a postulated severe accident scenario in a light water reactor.
