AbstractAir ingress accident is a complicated accident scenario that may limit the deployment of hightemperature gas reactors. The complexity of this accident scenario is compounded by multiple physical phenomena that are involved in the air ingress event. These include diffusion, natural circulation, and complex chemicals reaction with graphite and oxygen. In an attempt to better understand the phenomenon, the FLUENT-6 computational fluid dynamics code was used to assess two air ingress experiments. The firs…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
