OBJECTIVES

  • 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.
AUDIENCE
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.
PREREQUISITES
Minimum background: Master of Science in Nuclear Engineering.
