Abstract: AbstractThe French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the Radiation protection and Nuclear Safety Institute (IRSN) are developing a hydrogen risk analysis code (safety code) which incorporates both lumped parameter (LP) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) formulations. In this paper we present the governing equations, numerical strategy and schemes used for the CFD approach. Typical numerical studies will be presented for hydrogen distribution and combustion applications in realistic large geometries.
