Abstract

Parameters and concepts are introduced in order to provide a view of nuclear thermal hydraulics covering from the bases to the application of the discipline. Namely, selected cross-cutting issues from the thermal hydraulics universe are defined. This view is essential for understanding the content of the book and for self-confirming the level of understanding of thermal hydraulics by the reader. Two phase flows and heat transfer are concerned together with safety concepts. Examples moving from bases to applications are the fundamental relationship of thermal hydraulics involving quality, void fraction, slip ratio and pressure, the steam ...
