Heat transfer correlations in nuclear reactor safety calculations - Vol. I
H. Abel-Larsen, A. Olsen, J. Miettinen, T. Siikonen, J. Rasmussen, A. Sjöberg, K. Becker
Heat transfer correlations, most of them incorporated in the
heat transfer packages of the nuclear reactor safety computer
programmes RELAP-5, TRAC (PF1) and NORA have been tested
against a relevant set of transient and steady-state experiments.
In addition to usually measured parameters the calculations
provided information on other physical parameters.
Results are presented and discussed.
The report consists of a main report (Vol.I) and appendices
(Vol.II). Chapters 3,4 and 5 of the main report are primarily
intended for computer programme users. Chapter 6 is recommended
for those looking for main results rather than details. The
appendices will be useful for computer programme developers.
