Eymon Lan attended the 34th Thermal and Fluids Analysis Workshop (TFAWS
2023)
, and presented "Prediction of Cryogenic Propellant Tank Active
Pressure Control by Jet Induced Mixing."

















 

August 21, 2023

Dr. Shi and Ilyas Yilgor attended the 20th International Topical Meeting
on Nuclear Reactor Thermal Hydraulics (NURETH-20) held at Washington,
D.C. Dr. Shi presented the paper "Development of Solids Transport Model
for Fuel Dispersal Studies," submitted by Avinash Moharana. Ilyas also
presented his paper "Experimental Investigation of Heat Pipe Flow
Dynamics and Performance."

Please check out a recent paper published by Avinash Moharana at Nuclear Engineering and Design on the "Computational Model Development and Validation of Fuel Dispersal Phenomena." This paper introduces the current research on Fuel Fragmentation, Relocation, and Dispersal studies (FFRD) for light water reactors. Its main focus is on a newly developed computational model that utilizes a Eulerian-Eulerian-Lagrangian framework to analyze the gas, liquid, and solid phases during fuel dispersal phenomena. The validated results offer valuable insights into the flow characteristics of this three-phase system, particularly as solid fuel particles interact with the liquid coolant while being carried by the gaseous phase.
