Description

Two-dimensional finite-element models for the treatment of the nonlinear, transient response of fluids and structures are described. The fluid description is quasi-Eulerian, so that the mesh can move independently of the material, and it includes a new finite-element up-winding scheme. The structural description is based on a co-rotational formulation in which the coordinate system is embedded in the elements, which is applicable to arbitrarily large rotations. The interface between the fluid and structure permits relative sliding, but because of the description of the quasi-Eulerian fluid, the nodes of the fluid and structure can be allowed to remain contiguous.

Description

Two-dimensional finite-element models for the treatment of the nonlinear, transient response of fluids and structures are described. The fluid description is quasi-Eulerian, so that the mesh can move independently of the material, and it includes a new finite-element up-winding scheme. The structural description is based on a co-rotational formulation in which the coordinate system is embedded in the elements, which is applicable to arbitrarily large rotations. The interface between the fluid and structure permits relative sliding, but because of the description of the quasi-Eulerian fluid, the nodes of the fluid and structure can be allowed to remain contiguous. Modeling procedures for treating the various aspects of subassemblies, such as the narrow fluid channels, the fuel bundles which are immersed in the coolant, and the axial flow are developed. Calculations are made for a symmetric 7-subassembly cluster and compared to experimental results. In addition, the application to a 19-subassembly cluster is described.
