3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The COOLOD-N2 code provides a capability for the analyses of the steady-state thermal-hydraulics of research reactors. This code is a revised version of the COOLOD-N code, and is applicable not only for research reactors in which plate-type fuel is adopted, but also for research reactors in which  rod-type fuel is adopted. In the code, subroutines to calculate temperature distribution in rod-type fuel have been newly added to the COOLOD-N code. The COOLOD-N2 code can calculate fuel temperatures under both forced convection cooling mode and natural convection cooling mode. A "Heat Transfer package" is used for calculating heat transfer coefficient, DNB heat flux etc. The "Heat  Transfer package" is a subroutine program and is especially developed for research reactors in which plate-type fuel is adopted. In case of rod-type fuel, DNB heat flux is calculated by both the "Heat Transfer package" and Lund DNB heat flux correlation which is  popular for TRIGA reactor. The COOLOD-N2 code also has a capability  of calculating ONB temperature, the heat flux at onset of flow instability as well as DNB heat flux.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The "Heat Transfer Package" is a subprogram for calculating heat transfer coefficients, ONB temperature, heat flux at onset of flow instability and DNB heat flux. The "Heat transfer package" was especially developed for research reactors which are operated under low pressure and low temperature conditions using plate-type fuel, just like the JRR-3M. Heat transfer correlations adopted in the "Heat Transfer Package" were obtained or estimated based on the heat transfer experiments in which thermal-hydraulic features of the upgraded JRR-3 core were properly  reflected. The "Heat Transfer Package" is applicable to upward and downward flow.
