Scaling of containment experiments (SCACEX) [final report]

Project ID: FIR1-CT-2001-20127
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C

Abstract

The SCACEX Thematic Network was created to show how the experimental results from scaled experiments can be transferred to real, prototypical reactor conditions in the field of nuclear safety research. The scaling analyses presented in the report demonstrate that the existing methods of scaling and similarity analysis have an almost universal range of applicability. As result of the work, common features of scaling in different application fields can be identified as follows:
- Identification and ranking of relevant phenomena (simplified PIRT);
- List of relevant parameters associated with the phenomena;
- List of dimensionless numbers derived from the relevant parameters;
- Interpretation taking into account the geometric (or time-related) scale ratios.
