Abstract:To fully model the physics present within the proposed supercritical water reactor (SCWR), the thermal hydraulics calculations (yielding temperatures and densities in each material as a function of space) must be coupled to the neutronic calculations (yielding reactivity and neutron flux shapes). To enable this full coupling, a 3D model of a supercritical water reactor is being implemented in the CFD software OpenFOAM with the same geometry as a 3D MCNP (neutronics) model. Coupling will performed through resul… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research 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 students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
