Abstract

The seminar entitled ""Multiphase Processes in LMFBR Safety Analysis"" was organised by the Education and Training Service of the Commission of the European Communities, Joint Research Centre at Ispra in Northern Italy. In this volume the reactor safety context of the multiphase problems now under study is first outlined. The differential equations of multiphase multicomponent flow are then examined, and the heat, mass and momentum exchange functions necessary to complete the mathematical model are discussed. Attention then turns to the numerical methods employed for the solution of the equations, and to simplified versions of the comprehensive model which have proved useful in practical safety assessment. Considerable space is given to the experimental investigation of multiphase reactor safety questions, and to the experimental validation of the computer codes which have been developed for their analysis. A resume of the Panel Session forms the final chapter of the book.
