Abstract

Understanding the behaviour of a hot melt poured into a cold volatile liquid is of considerable interest in many situations. These range from accidents in the metal casting industry to the study of hypothetical accidents in a nuclear reactor. This paper outlines the physics of this problem, describes a twodimensional, transient, three component flow model developed to study mixing and presents a measure devised by us to quantify mixture compositions. Calculations are presented of the evolution of such mixtures, showing the effect of changing external parameters such as ambient pressure.
