IMPACT CAPE-P: DNB Power Analysis Code for PWR FUEL Assembly - Evaluation Method - Analytical Step Calculation Method 3. Detection of DNB 1. Fuel Bundle 2. Each Subchannel 3-D Subchannel Analysis with Drift-flux Model Weismann Model, or Katto’s Model as Option 3-D Two-Phase Flow Analysis with Non-homogeneous and Non-equilibrium Two-fluid Model

IMPACT CAPE-P: Outline of 3-D Two-phase Flow Analysis Module  Analysis Coordinate: Cartesian Coordinate  Basic Equations - one pressure, non-homogeneous and non-equilibrium two-fluid model - mass, energy and three momentum conservation equations for vapor and liquid phases  Constitutive Equations - Lateral lift forces acting on bubbles: Suffman force, Wall effect force and Bubble dispersion force.  Model coefficients were given by empirical correlations. - Turbulence Model: Sato model  The eddy viscosity induced by bubbles was considered. - Interfacial drag force: Andersen model (C 0,V gj : Ishii model) - Interfacial heat transfer coefficient: Plesset and Zwick model for Saturated boiling and Unal model for Subcooled boiling

Fuel rod Core region Bubbly layer IMPACT CAPE-P: Outline of DNB Evaluation Module (Weisman Model)  A bubbly layer is formed by build-up of bubbles near the wall, under subcooled boiling condition.  DNB occurs when a void fraction of the bubbly layer exceeds the critical value.  In the calculation, nearest meshes from the wall are defined as a bubbly layer. Heated wall Bubbly layer Core region bubble
