Cross-cutting European Research for Single Phase Turbulence in Innovative Reactors
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 8th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Thermal-Hydraulics, Operation and Safety, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
Thermal-hydraulics is recognized as a key scientific subject in the development of different innovative nuclear reactor systems. From the thermal-hydraulic point of view, different innovative reactors are mainly characterized by their coolants (gas, water, liquid metals and molten salt). They result in different micro- and macroscopic behavior of flow and heat transfer and require specific models and advanced analysis tools. However, many common thermal-hydraulic issues are identified among various innovative nuclear systems.
InEurope, such cross-cutting thermal-hydraulics issues are the subject of the 7th framework programme THINS (Thermal-Hydraulics of Innovative Nuclear Systems) project which runs from 2010 untill 2014.
This paper describes an important part of this project which will be devoted to single phase turbulence issues. To this respect, two main issues are identified and will be treated, i.e. non-unity Prandtl number turbulence and thermal fatigue in innovative nuclear systems.
