The simplified tests on resuspension mechanisms (STORM) facility includes an aerosol generation system, where the aerosols needed for the experiment are created, a steam generator and a nitrogen superheater that generate the carrier gas, a mixing tank where the aerosols are allowed to stabilize, a test section that is presently a straight tube but that can be replaced with other geometries and a wash filter system for the aerosol removal.
The paper presents work concerned with the thermal-hydraulic behaviour of three important components of the facility : the vaporization chamber, the condensation pipe and the mixing vessel. After a short description of the models formulated for the calculation of the thermal-hydraulics of the facility, some comparisons between the model predictions and the experimental results of the first three tests are presented.
