Abstract

NORTHNET (Nordic Thermal Hydraulic Network) project is supported by the major nuclear industry players in nordic countries, to strengthen the modeling capability in the thermal hydraulics of nuclear power systems. The overall objective of the current work on Roadmap 1 (RM1) in the NORTHNET project is to develop an advanced, CFD-based, computational tool with steady-state and transient capabilities to simulate nuclear fuel assemblies, with particular focus on prediction of safety margins and on supporting optimal assembly design.
