Schubring December 2, 2009 (Driving Towards) SingleChannel Analysis I Conduction in fuel 1+ I Gap conductance 1 I Conduction in cladding << 1 I Convection to coolant 23 Included in these final notes (in several parts) is the full singlechannel analysis problem Convection to Coolant I General equation for T co T m I Singlephase coolant, constant properties & heat transfer coefficient (analytical solutions) I Singlephase coolant, variable properties & heat transfer coefficient (numerical solution) I Twophase coolant I Miscellanea I Engineering judgment and singlechannel analysis Remarks T&K Chapter 13 covers some of these topics, but in a different way than notes. The goal of these notes is to get you to be able to solve a full singlechannel analysis problem without relying on code as a crutch (so you actually understand it!) Topics covered in Chapter 13, but not in class (notes or examples) are enrichment. This is almost certainly the hardest material in this course. It requires an understanding of twophase flow (including heat transfer), as well as conduction heat transfer, careful arithmetic, and (often) some programming/scripting. This is almost certainly the most important material in this course. The goal here is to compute the temperatures (on which limits are directly applied) in a reactor geometry. (Well get P , too.) So, ask questions as needed in class or office hours. The two days of advanced reactors at the end of the class can easily be deleted if we need to focus on the present material. General Equation for T co T m Convective heat transfer is typically understood through the heat transfer coefficient: q 00 co = h ( T co T m ) (1) T co T m = q 00 co h = q 2 R co h (2) Computation of h can be nontrivial, but this equation is general for any h . Equations of SingleChannel Analysis Most frequently, T m is the initial known, so analysis proceeds outsidein. T co T m = q 2 R co h (3) T ci T co = q 2 k c ln R co R ci (4) T fo T ci = q 2 R g h g = q ( R ci + R fo ) h g (5) T max T fo = q 4 k f (6) Axial Dependence These are simple enough equations for the unknown temperatures....
