    Multidimensional Effects in Condensation of Water Vapour in Binary and Ternary Mixtures2008Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Detailed studies have been performed to elucidate the mechanisms that govern the gravity-driven free convection condensation of water vapour from binary and ternary mixtures with noncondensable gases. Two major goals of the studies have been to investigate the multidimensional effects and to evaluate the influence of the lighter noncondensable gas in ternary mixtures on the over-all transport phenomena. Two modeling approaches have been used: a solution employing the boundary layer similarity approximation and a numerical solution of multi-fluid, multi-component formulation of the conservation equations. It has been shown that the two approaches are equivalent when applied to binary mixtures in simple geometries. The latter method must be used, howeve, to capture the spatial effects and the ternary mixture phenomena.

    Mechanistic Modeling of Water Vapour Condensation in Presence of Noncondensable Gases2007Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis concerns the analytical and numerical analysis of the water vapour condensation from the multicomponent mixture of condensable and noncondensable gases in the area of the nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulic safety.

    Following an extensive literature review in this field three aspects of the condensation phenomenon have been taken into consideration: a surface condensation, a liquid condensate interaction with gaseous mixtures and a spontaneous condensation in supersaturated mixtures. In all these cases condensation heat and mass transfer rates are significantly dependent on the local mixture intensive parameters like for example the noncondensable species concentration.

    In order to analyze the multicomponent mixture distribution in the above-mentioned conditions, appropriate simplified physical and mathematical models have been formulated. Two mixture compositions have been taken into account: a binary mixture of water vapour with heavy noncondensable gas and a ternary mixture with two noncondensable gases with different molecular weights. For the binary mixture a special attention has been focused on the heavy gas accumulation in the near-interface region and the influence of liquid film instabilities on the interface heat and mass transfer phenomena. For the ternary mixture of gases a special attention has been paid to the influence of the light gas and induced buoyancy forces on the condensation heat and mass transfer processes.

    Both analytical and numerical methods have been used in order to find solutions to these problems. The analytical part has been performed applying the boundary layer approximation and the similarity method to the system of film and mixture conservation equations. The numerical analysis has been performed with the in-house developed code and commercial CFD software. Performing analytical and CFD calculations it has been found that most important processes which govern the multicomponent gas distribution and condensation heat transfer degradation are directly related to the interaction between interface mass balances and buoyancy forces. It has been observed that if the influence of the liquid film instabilities is taken into consideration the heat transfer enhancement due to the presence of different types of waves is directly related to the internal film hydrodynamics and shows up in the mixture-side heat transfer coefficient. The model developed for the dispersed phase growth shows that degradation of the condensation heat transfer rate, which is a consequence of degradation of the convective mass flux, should be taken into account for highly supersaturated gaseous mixtures and can be captured by combination with the mechanistic CFD surface condensation model.

    Keywords: condensation, noncondensable gases, CFD simulation, boundary-layer approximation, binary and ternary mixtures

    Theoretical investigation of water vapour condensation in presence of noncondensable gases2005Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Steam condensation phenomenon plays an important role in many industrial applications. Especially in energy sector this process requires deep understanding. When noncondensable gases are taken into consideration description of the entire phenomenon becomes more complicated. If the surface condensation is taken into consideration this additional species accumulates and creates noncondensable layer near the surface on water vapour condenses. Due to this effect heat and mass transfer rates from gas mixture decreases. Also volume condensation (if it occurs) is affected by the presence of inert gases.

    Several examples where the phenomena described above are important can be taken into consideration: studies of accidents in the nuclear power plants where condensation in the volume and condensation on the cold containment’s structures occurs after steam is released due to the pipe brake in the primary loop (especially this is important for PWR’s containments which in normal operation conditions are filled with air or nitrogen); condensation of steam in the pipe systems of BWR reactors where some amount of hydrogen can be accumulated due to the water vapour condensation in nonvented pipes; condensation of steam in the condensers after low pressure stage turbine; etc. Also in other fields, e.g. chemistry or meteorology, the condensation of water vapour in presence of noncondensable species plays very important role.

    Diffusion surface condensation model and its implementation into CFX – 4 CFD code has been described in this licentiate thesis. Three different situations have been taken into account: surface condensation of water vapour in presence of air on the vertical wall (computational results have been compared with several commonly used correlations), surface condensation of water vapour in presence of air on the horizontal wall (results have been compared with experimental data), volume condensation in presence of air (known also as spontaneous condensation) – principle of the model has been described and calculation example has been presented and analysed.

    Abstract [en]

    A new mechanistic model for prediction of wall condensation in presence of noncondensable gas is presented. The model is based on the resolution of flow and temperature fields in the boundary layer to allow for prediction of diffusion and accumulation of noncondensable gas in the vicinity of a liquid film. Additionally, when the temperature in the vapour-gas mixture drops locally below the critical value defined by the Wilson's line, the fog formation is modelled. Both accumulation of noncondensable gas and fog formation can significantly influence the heat transfer process and thus they must be carefully modelled in many industrial applications. In particular, the degradation of heat transfer rates has an essential influence on the performance of safety systems in nuclear power plants. The present model has been implemented into a commercial computational fluid dynamics code CFX-4.

    Laminar filmwise condensation of vapor in presence of multi-component mixture of non-condensable gases2007In: Proceedings - 12th International Topical Meeting on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics, NURETH-12, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Degradation of heat transfer during water vapour free convection condensation in the presence of two noncondesable gases with significant difference in molecular weights is investigated in this paper. Ternary diffusivity coefficients are derived from the Maxwell-Stefan equation and the boundary layer approximation, both for liquid and gas sides, is formulated and, with appropriate boundary and interface conditions, numerically solved. The similarity method has been used in order to simplify partial differential equations to the system of ordinary differential equations. The new model has been validated against experimental data for free convection condensation of water vapour in presence of air. Numerical results show good agreement with experimental data. The same model has been applied to study the condensation of water vapour in presence of two noncondensable gases with significantly different molecular weights. It has been observed that addition of even small amount of the light gas into the initial binary mixture of water vapour with a heavy species creates significant resistance to the heat transfer process. It has been concluded that both the diffusivity of the lighter gas as well as the buoyancy effects close to the film-mixture interface are the major contributors to the increase of the heat transfer resistance. Finally, the conditions that can lead to the accumulation of the lighter gas are discussed.

    Multidimensional Multicomponent Model of Condensation in Presence of Non-Condensable Gases2005Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Non-condensable gases, even in small quantities, are known to significantly influence the heat transfer and the condensation rate. Near the condensate interface, which typically forms liquid films on walls, the non-condensable gases will accumulate and create a mass transfer resistance. Thus, a proper prediction of the heat and mass transfer rates require an accurate estimation of the concentration of non-condensable gases in the boundary layer in the direct proximity of the condensate. This phenomenon plays an important role in many industrial applications, e.g. inside the steam-generation tubes during a small-break loss of coolant accident (SB-LOCA) in pressurized water reactors (PWRs). It can also take place during the course of a hypothetical sever accident in PWRs, when hydrogen can be produced and distributed in the containment due to convective and diffusive processes. High local hydrogen concentration can lead to detonations and the structural integrity of the containment may be in danger. In the present paper a new model for the condensation of vapor in presence of non-condensable gases is presented. The model has been implemented into a commercial CFD code CFX and has a full multidimensional capability. Both convective and diffusive terms responsible for the transport of the non-condensable gases are taken into account in the model. In that way the mass transfer rate at the condensate interface is modeled in a mechanistic way. The liquid films which are formed in the course of condensation on walls are modeled in detail. The film model predicts the local parameters which influence the local heat transfer intensity. This includes liquid film thickness and the temperature distribution in the liquid film. The current model has been validated against separate-effect experiments performed by Choi et al. (2002) and Malet et al. (2003) and promising results have been obtained. In the full paper a detailed description of the model will be given and a thorough validation will be presented.

    Numerical analysis of solitary wave influence on the filmwise condensation in presence of non - Condensable gases2006In: International Conference on Nuclear Engineering, Proceedings, ICONE, 2006Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is dealing with the analysis of condensation in presence of non-condensable gas on a laminar liquid film falling down on a vertical smooth surface. Particular interest is focused on the influence of solitary waves on the condensation process. Solutions to the pressure, velocity, temperature and additional scalar variable fields are obtained numerically by solving two - dimensional Navier - Stokes equations formulated in a general coordinate system and applying the artificial compressibility method. The whole system of equations together with adequate boundary conditions is implemented using the finite difference method and solved in the Matlab® 7 code. Both implicit Crank - Nicolson and Euler schemes for the time derivatives are initially used and the latter one is chosen as a more stable. All computations are carried out with prescribed geometry for a film and gas domains and a special attention is focused mainly on the modelling of the influence of the interfacial boundary conditions on the heat transfer process between gaseous mixture and liquid phases. Description of the physical, mathematical and numerical models and several examples of the solutions are presented. Conclusions on the wave hydrodynamics influence on the heat transfer during phase change process are drawn. Copyright
