Balance equations

D. Bestion; C. Morel    Atomic Energy Commission, Grenoble, France

Abstract

Any investigation of a nuclear thermal-hydraulic issue either by hand calculations or using more or less sophisticated simulation tools requires first a difficult selection of the right degree of simplification of equations depending on the situation and on the expected accuracy and reliability of the solution. An effort is made to present the subject in steps of increasing difficulty and to show differences and similarities between balance equations in system thermal-hydraulics and in computational fluid-dynamics. This may help the reader to find his own path toward the understanding of the complex nuclear thermal-hydraulics. Attention is drawn ...
