Abstract [en]

Coolability of a debris bed in a water pool is studied numerically with the emphasis on the effects of natural convection flows driven by vapor release in the porous bed. A multifluid computer code DECOSIM is developed and applied to the simulation of liquid-vapor flows in the saturated conditions relevant to the long transient of the debris bed formation and coolability problems. Numerical calculations carried out reveal the influence of the debris bed shape on the structure of natural circulation flows in the water pool, as well as on the void fraction distributions inside the debris bed. The effect of large scale flow structures in the pool on transport of debris particles is demonstrated. It is shown that the vortical flow can capture the smaller particle which may result in considerable spreading of the sedimented debris over the pool floor.
