3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

Distribution profiles of uranium, nitric acid and plutonium in counter-current solvent extraction and  washing (scrubbing) pluristage equipment.
top ]
4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Calculation made stage by stage (up to 20 stages), considering:
- the equilibrium modelisation of uranium distribution for any acid concentration;
- the equilibrium modelisation of nitric acid distribution for any uranium concentration;
- the percentage of tributylphosphate and diluent;
- the temperature effect;
- the real flow-rate corrections.
Several bucklings ensure a complete balance along the equipment.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

It is assumed that the plutonium concentration is relatively low and does not change the balance of other constituents.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The mean running time is about 40 seconds for  one case (on  IBM 370).
