3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The program simulates the voiding following an accident, of a constant area channel, either heated or  adiabatic in which a steam-water mixture flows. Subcooled water may  be present in the initial part of the channel.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

A partially simplified model has been used for the non-stationary hydrodynamics of a two-phase flow, based on mass  and energy conservation equations. The deriving system of quasi-linear partial differential equations has been integrated by using the method of the characteristic curves.
