Abstract [en]

The present paper presents results of the TRACE code assessment against post dryout experimental data obtained in tubes and annuli. The investigations have been focused on the experiments carried out at 70 bar pressure, 10 K inlet subcooling and the mass flux variation between 500-2000 kg/(m2s). Various axial power distributions (uniform, inlet peaked, middle peaked, and outlet peaked) have been used in the tube geometry. Uniform power distributions, with various ratios between the inner and the outer power have been used in the annulus geometry. The validation results indicated that the discrepancies between measured and calculated data are in a range of ± 20%. In addition a sensitivity study has been performed in which the influence of several parameters (including cell size and boundary conditions) on computational results have been investigated.
