3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

This program was developed for  thermal-hydraulic analysis of MTR type research reactors in steady-state operation condition at nominal power or during a loss of coolant flow accident (LOFA), both for an average channel and for a hot channel. It also can be used for nondestructive reactivity accidents analyses.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The analysis carried out in TRANSV2 is based on the evaluation of the coupled thermal-hydraulic and neutronic effects. The core is represented by a single fuel plate with its associated coolant channel. A one-directional hydrodynamic model with single phase flow was used. The heat transfer is computed on the basis of a one-dimensional conduction solution in each axial section using a complete heat transfer correlation package to be applied to both downward and upward flows. The heat generation rate  is assumed to be a separable function of space and time, with the spatial relationship preassigned. The point kinetics equations are solved using a backward extrapolation technique.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

It requires about 60 seconds of CPU time to process 1000 time-steps on a VAX 11/780.
IAEA1209/01
The test cases included in this package were executed by NEADB on a DEC VAX 6000-510 computer. The following CPU times were found:
     test case 1: 00.76 sec
     test case 2: 29.15 sec
     test case 3: 27.88 sec
     test case 4: 38.19 sec
     test case 5: 05.70 sec.
