Unformatted text preview: ENU 4134 – Convection to Coolant and Full Single-Channel Analysis – Part 2 D. Schubring November 12, 2010 Learning Objectives I (4a) Use equations from nuclear heat transfer (as simple functions of axial coordinate z ) to perform simple, analytical single-channel analysis (SCA) I (4b) Derive finite volume method for use in steady-state SCA I (4c) Implement finite volume method in scripting or compiled language to solve a wide range of LWR SCA problems (Pr. 2) I (4d) Use general SCA code to efficiently perform design/safety analyses for LWR (Pr. 2) I (4e) Integrate knowledge from course to evaluate safety- and design-significance of results from SCA code (Pr. 2) Single Channel Analysis I Single-phase coolant, constant properties & heat transfer coefficient (analytical solutions) I Single-phase coolant, variable properties & heat transfer coefficient (numerical solution) I Two-phase coolant I Miscellanea I Engineering judgment and single-channel analysis + all cross-cutting technical objectives (#5) Axial Dependence There are simple(-ish) equations for the unknown temperatures. However, many of the variables are actually functions of z (if not also local T ’s). T co ( z )- T m ( z ) = q ( z ) 2 π R co htc ( z ) (1) T ci ( z )- T co ( z ) = q ( z ) 2 π k c ( z ) ln R co R ci (2) T fo ( z )- T ci ( z ) = q ( z ) π ( R ci + R fo ) htc g ( z ) (3) ffT max ( z )- T fo ( z ) = q ( z ) 4 π k f ( z ) (4) Axial Dependence (2) Typically only T m (- L / 2) & P (- L / 2) – coolant bulk temperature, pressure at inlet – are known. T m ( z ) must be determined from an energy balance. Neglecting boiling for the moment: q ( z ) dz = c p ( z ) ˙ mdT m (5) dT m dz = q ( z ) c p ( z ) ˙ m (6) T m ( z ) = T m , in + Z z- L / 2 q ( z ) c p ( z ) ˙ m dz (7) Axial Dependence (3) So the equations, given T m , in as a starting condition: T m ( z ) = T m , in + Z z- L / 2 q ( z ) c p ( z ) ˙ m dz (8) T co ( z )- T m ( z ) = q ( z ) 2 π R co htc ( z ) (9) T ci ( z )- T co ( z ) = q ( z ) 2 π k c ( z ) ln R co R ci (10) T fo ( z )- T ci ( z ) = q ( z ) π ( R ci + R fo ) htc g ( z ) (11) T max ( z )- T fo ( z ) = q ( z ) 4 π k f ( z ) (12) As is often the case in TH, analytical solutions are only available for carefully selected cases. Single-Phase Coolant, Constant Properties and htc ’s I Single-phase coolant I Determined via energy balance, i.e. , Δ h = q total / ˙ m < Δ h sub I Potentially must consider subcooled boiling I Constant properties I Always an approximation. Consider Δ T × d ( prop ) / dT . I Constant htc ’s I Single phase htc (P/D, properties, D h , ˙ m ) I Gap conductance – always an approximation This is a “classroom example” – this wouldn’t be used in an actual industry code, but produces useful results for study. Single-Phase Coolant, Constant Properties and htc ’s (2) Under these assumptions, our equations reduce to: T m ( z ) = T m , in + 1 c p ˙ m Z z- L / 2 q ( z ) dz (13) T co ( z )- T m ( z ) = q ( z ) 2 π R...
