Abstract [en]

A new spacer model has been implemented into the subchannel code Mona-3 and validated against dryout experiments in various rod bundles with different number of spacers and different spacer designs. The spacer-induced deposition enhancement is captured by proper modeling of the turbulence intensity downstream of a spacer.

The Mona-3 code with the new spacer model captures spacer effects in a correct manner. Both the effect of the number of spacers and the effect of the spacer design are predicted correctly. In particular, the critical power difference between 24-rod bundles with 6 and with 7 spacers is measured to be larger than the difference between 25-rod bundles with 6 and with 7 spacers. This experimental finding is well captured with the Mona-3 code with the present spacer model.
