Thermal hydraulics of light water reactors: general background

Code référence : 846
Logo ENEN Web
OBJECTIFS
The main objective is to acquire the general knowledge in reactor thermal hydraulics requested for design and safety analysis of light water reactors (LWRs):
• assess thermodynamic efficiency of a LWR (Rankine cycle),
• solve the heat conduction in fuel elements,
• apply the balance equations for single- and two-phase flow in one-dimensional LWR conditions,
• identify the main issues in thermal and hydraulic design of LWR.

Specific models and issues for LWRs are addressed by a second course: "Thermal hydraulics of light water reactors: advanced models and applications".
PUBLIC
Engineers, researchers and PhD students involved in LWR thermal hydraulic analysis (design, safety, operation): nuclear industry companies, research centres, Technical Safety Organizations (TSO), regulatory bodies.
PRÉ-REQUIS
The level of the course is equivalent to a Master in Nuclear Engineering. The pre-requisite are:
• Principle and operation of nuclear reactors,
• Bachelor level in fluid mechanics or mechanical engineering.
CONTENU
• Thermodynamics and reactor cycles (efficiency).
• Balance equations for single-phase flow (mass, momentum, energy): control of mass and volume, integral and differential form.
• Balance equations for two-phase flow: phase density function, averaging process, interfacial transfer, one-dimensional form.
• Review of available models for LWR flow conditions.
• Fuel thermal conduction: material properties, temperature distribution.
• Void fraction models for one-dimensional flow in channels.
• Heat transfer: boundary layer, single-phase convection, boiling and condensation.
• Friction and pressure losses: wall friction, flow characteristic.
