Abstract

The objective of this report is to study the following problems: bubble formation and ultimate bubble size; wall effect on bubble rise velocities and bubble behaviour under churn-turbulent flow conditions. Potential wall effects in the pressuriser are also considered including relevant phenomena in the TMI-2 accident. General conclusions are presented, taking into account their importance in the improvement of pool scrubbing codes.
