Interface Tracking Simulation of post-LOCA Dispersed Flow Regime in a PWR sub-channel #Regime

In the dispersed flow film boiling (DFFB) regime, which exists under post loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) conditions in pressurized water reactors (PWRs), droplet dynamics play a critical role in heat transfer. The DFFB regime is characterized by a very high void fraction, such that the flow regime is akin to a mist-type flow. Consequently, the dominant […]
