Use of a Moving Heat Conductor Mesh to Perform Reflood Calculations with RELAP4/MOD6

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

RELAP4 is a computer code which can be used for the transient therm~l hydraulic analysis of light water reactors and related systems .. Various versions of the RELAP4 code are widely used throughout the world for experimental system analysis, reactor design,and nuclear system safety studies. RELAP4/MOD6 includes many new analytical models which were developed primarily for the analysis of the reflood phase of a PWR loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) transient. The key feature forming the basis for the MOD6 reflood calculation is a unique moving finite differenced heat conductor. This paper will describe the development and application of the moving heat ... continued below
