5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM
Due the variable dimensioning of the code the complexity of the problem is only restricted by the fast memory size.
The array 'A' contains all data necessary for thermodynamic calculations.
Its length is dependent on:
NZ number of subcompartments
NW number of junctions
NP number of variables to be stored for plotting (presently NP=2*NW+4*NZ+1)
ND number of differential equations
ND = 4+NZ for PWR
ND = 4+NZ+2 for BWR
NB number of breaks at the reactor
NV number of value-pairs for mass and energy release rates dimension of A = (6+3*NB*NV+3*NW+23*NZ+4*ND+NP)
The array 'S' contains all information for solution of heat transfer to and conduction inside structures, its length depends on:
NK number of structures to be simulated
NM maximum number of different materials in a structure
NSM maximum number of slabs of a structure dimension of S =
