  • CEC thermal-hydraulic benchmark exercise on Fiploc verification experiment F2 in Battelle model containment : Experimental phases 2, 3 and 4 : Results of comparisons

Abstract

This final report comprises the major results of Phase II of the thermal-hydraulic benchmark exercise on Fiploc verification experiment F2 in the Battelle model containment, experimental phases 2,3 and 4, which was organised for the purpose of furthering the understanding and analysis of long-term thermal-hydraulic phenomena inside containments during and after severe core accidents. Eight organisations from six countries participated using eight computer codes during phase 2. Altogether eighteen results from computer code runs were supplied, which constitute the basis for comparisons with the experimental data contained in this publication. Major comparison results between computations and data are reported for pressure, steam and air content, velocities and their directions, heat transfer coefficients and saturation ratios. The Phase II CEC benchmark exercise provided an up-to-date state of the art status review of the thermal-hydraulic capabilities of present computer codes for containment analyses. This exercise has shown that all of the participating codes can simulate the important global features of the experiment correctly.
