Abstract

The benchmark problems organised within the STORM programme on aerosol agglomeration, deposition and resuspension have had the participation of twelve different organisations using a number of codes, either common codes in aerosol transport in nuclear power plants or, in the case of resuspension, codes written specifically for solving the particular problems. The results obtained show a good qualitative agreement for aerosol agglomeration and deposition but large differences remain, quantitative as well as qualitative, for aerosol resuspension, where the models currently available are based on a very limited experimental database and are lacking in both development and validation. The results of the aerosol resuspension benchmarks highlight the importance of the STORM programme in establishing a database of well-controlled experiments for code development and validation.
