1 GAMMA Code for NGNP Air Ingress Analysis Chang Oh RELAP5 Workshop November 8, 2007

2 History of GAMMA Development Air Ingress Analysis Code PCU System Analysis Analysis for H2 Production Plant (High-temperature Steam Electrolysis Process) NRL(National Research Lab) Program: 2006-2010 INERI Program: 2003-2006 INERI Program: 2007-2009 Analysis for H2 Production Plant (Thermochemical Process)

3 What is air-ingress” Why a new code? -Air-ingress is a design- based serious accident in VHTR. -Accelerating heatup of core -Mechanical degradation of bottom structural graphite -Releasing toxic gas

4 Main Characteristics of GAMMA GAMMA: GAs Multicomponent Mixture Analysis Transient multi-D fluid and solid treatment: 1D~3D Various coordinates: Rectangular & Cylindrical 1D/3D merging: some components can be treated 1D while others are treated 2D or 3D. ICE numerical scheme: matrix reduction, quick convergence, powerful for transient analysis Treatment of 6 gas species: He, O 2, N 2, CO, CO 2, H2O Chemical reaction models: homogeneous, heterogeneous Diffusion models: full multicomponent diffusion, effective diffusion, tracer diffusion models Surface-surface radiation model Porous body treatment in the core: effective thermal conductivity

5 Governing Equations of GAMMA Mass Conservation: mixture, He, N2, O2, CO, CO2, H2O Momentum Conservation Energy Conservation

6 Numerical Features of GAMMA  Semi-implicit & Donor Cell Scheme, Staggered Mesh Layout  Linearization by Newton Raphson’s Method  Matrix Reduction by ICE (Implicit Continuous Eulerian)  10N  10N  N  N Pressure Matrix
