Testing and enhanced modelling of passive evolutionary systems technology for containment cooling - tempest, Final Synthesis Report

Project ID: FIKS-CT-2000-00095
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


The main objective of TEMPEST was to validate and improve advanced modelling methods for evaluating pressure safety margins of BWR containments. Accurate prediction of pressure transients in case of accidents requires capabilities for modelling 3D effects such as mixing and stratification of steam, nitrogen and hydrogen in containment compartments. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes and other advanced codes possess the desired capabilities. TEMPEST performed both experimental and analytical research in the areas of:
- Validation of Building Condenser System Models.
- Passive Safety Features Assessment and Optimisation.
- Wetwell Gas Space Modelling and Performance Assessment.
- Plant Evaluation.
