Abstract: AbstractNRG uses the commercial CFD code CFX-4 for containment thermal-hydraulic analyses. Models to describe important physical phenomena such as condensation have been implemented by user coding. This paper describes these models. In addition, an overview is given of validation activities with the CFX4 model. Experimental results from the following sources have been used: the Kuhn condensation model; the PHEBUS test facility; the PANDA test facility; and the TOSQAN, MISTRA, and THAI test facilities within t…
