3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The transient (including LOCA) and steady state flow of two-phase compressible light water in a single heated channel. The momentum flux term is included and unequal phase velocities are allowed. A lumped fuel model and detailed surface transfer are included. Thermodynamic equilibrium of the two phases is assumed at each axial location. Either Fauske or Moody choke flow model may be used.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The one-dimensional conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy are solved by a numerically stable implicit finite difference scheme.
top ]
5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

Maximum of 50 axial nodes. There is one lumped fuel node at each axial node.
top ]
6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

A blowdown problem with 25 nodes takes about two minutes on an IBM 360/65.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

The numerical scheme is stable for all time step sizes so the time step size can be chosen on accuracy considerations alone giving much shorter computation times. Unequal phase velocities are allowed giving a more accurate representation.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The equation of state tables have been generated by the ASTEM (ANCR-1026) code.
