Abstract [en]

Over the last decades, the analysis of transients and accidents in nuclear power plants has beenperformed by system codes. Though they will remain the analyst’s tool of choice for the foreseeablefuture, their limitations are also well known. It has been suggested that an improvement in thesimulation technology can be obtained by “coupling” system codes with Computational FluidDynamics (CFD) calculations. This is usually attempted in a domain decomposition fashion: the CFDsimulation is only performed in a selected subdomain and its solution is “matched” with the systemcode solution at the interface. However, another coupling strategy can be envisioned. Namely, CFDsimulations can be used to provide closures to a system code.This strategy is based on the following two assumptions. The first assumption is that there aretransients which cannot be simulated by system codes because of the lack of adequate closures. Thesecond assumption is that appropriate closures can be provided by CFD simulations. In this paper,such a coupling strategy, inspired by the Heterogeneous Multiscale Method (HMM), is presented. Thephilosophy underlying this strategy is discussed with the help of a computational example.
