Thermal hydraulics and safety - International school in nuclear engineering
- Describe the various scales of two-phase flow modelling and their significance.
- Present the different formulations of the 1D two-phase flow modelling (number and nature of balance equations, set of dependent variables, closure laws).
- Give practical and relevant examples of thermal hydraulic models in the nuclear field.
- Identify and to discuss the major physical phenomena involved during design basis accident and severe accidents.
- Describe the different scenarios of core degradation and corium interactions during severe accidents.
- Present the hydrogen risk in LWRs.
The doctoral course is designed for young researchers, PhD students, post-doctorates and engineers from nuclear industry companies, research centres, Universities, Technical Safety Organizations (TSO), regulatory bodies.
Minimum background: Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering.
