INTRODUCTION

  • Validation of the ASTEC V1.2 CPA: modeling of thermal-hydraulic, aerosol and fission product phenomena.
  • Simulations of transients in containment systems of different scales
  • Small-scale experimental facilities (comparison with experiment):
    • PHEBUS containment vessel
    • KAEVER vessel
  • Large-scale experimental facilities (comparison with experiment):
    • LACE facility
    • Battelle Model Containment
  • Real-scale system (comparison with MELCOR):
    • VVER-1000 NPP containment

Facilities and transients

VVER-1000/320Containment

  • Balakovo NPP (Temelin NPP)
  • ABH scenario:

CONCLUSIONS

  • Several experiments and hypothetical scenario in facilities of different scales simulated with ASTEC CPA module
  • Thermal-hydraulic phenomena
  • Good general agreement between simulation and experimental / other code results.
  • Largest differences observed for temperature in small and large scale systems, and in real-scale system between ASTEC/CPA and MELCOR in wall heat transfer
  • Aerosol behaviour
  • Dry aerosol concentrations in vessels well simulated in small and large scale systems.
  • Deficiencies identified in small-scale facilities:
    • slight overprediction of aerosol sedimentation,
    • low deposition rate of wet aerosols.
