10 Energy Cycles in LWRs Fissionproduct energy in fuel Conduction through fuel Transfer across fuelclad gas gap Forced convection in coolant in fuel assemblies Transfer from clad surface to coolant Conduction across clad Steam generation due to boiling Steam separation Slide No 10
11 Specific Thermal Issues in LWRs (1) There are several existing reactor concepts in which heat transfer solutions depend on particular design concepts and the choice of coolant Although each reactor design has its own specific thermal problems, the solution of these problems can be approached in standard engineering manners that involve the fluid flow and heat transfer analysis The effort to integrate the heat transfer and fluid mechanics principles to accomplish the desired rate of heat removal from the reactor fuel is termed as the thermalhydraulic design of a nuclear reactor Slide No 11
12 Specific Thermal Issues in LWRs (2) Important difference between nuclear power plants and conventional power plants: in conventional power plants the temperature is limited to that resulting from combustion of coal, oil or gas temperature can increase continuously in a nuclear reactor when the rate of heat removal is less than the rate of heat generation Such situation could lead to the core damage Slide No 12
13 Specific Thermal Issues in LWRs (3) For a given reactor design, the maximum operating power is limited by some temperature in the system There are several possible factors that will set the limit temperature (and thus the reactor power): material changes of some construction material in the reactor allowable thermal stresses or influence of temperature on corrosion Thus the maximum temperature in a nuclear reactor core must be definitely established under normal reactor operation and this is the goal of the thermalhydraulic design and analysis of nuclear reactor cores Slide No 13
14 Specific Thermal Issues in LWRs (4) In nuclear reactors the construction materials must be chosen not only on the basis of the thermomechanical performance, but also (and often exclusively) on the basis of the nuclear properties Beryllium metal, for example, is an excellent material for use as moderator and reflector, but it is relatively brittle Austenitic stainless steels are used as the cladding for fast reactor fuels, but they tend to swell as a result of exposure at high temperatures to fast neutrons Slide No 14
15 Specific Thermal Issues in LWRs (4) Another peculiarity (and factor that adds problem) of nuclear reactors is that the power densities (e.g. power generated per unit volume) are very high This is required by economical considerations That leads to power densities of approximately 100 MWt/m 3 in PWRs and 55 MWt/m 3 in BWRs A typical sodiumcooled commercial fast breeder reactor has a power density as high as 500 MWt/m 3 In conventional power plants is of the order of 10 MWt/m 3. Slide No 15
16 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (1) Chain reaction is the primary source of energy in nuclear reactors Slide No 16
17 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (2) The energy released in nuclear fission reaction is distributed among a variety of reaction products characterized by different range and time delays In thermal design, the energy deposition distributed over the coolant and structural materials is frequently reassigned to the fuel in order to simplify the thermal analysis of the core Slide No 17
18 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (3) The volumetric fission heat source in the core can be found as, q ( r) = i () ( i) r deσ ( E)( φ r E) ( i) w f N i f, 0 w f (i) here is the recoverable energy released per fission event for ith fissionable material Slide No 18
19 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (4) The simplest model of fission heat distribution would correspond to a bare, homogeneous core Onegroup flux distribution for such geometry is given as, ν 0r πz φ( r, z) = J 0 ~ cos ~ R H here R ~ and H ~ are effective core dimensions that include extrapolation lengths as well as an adjustment to account for a reflected core Slide No 19
20 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (5) For a fuel rod located at r = r f distance from the centerline of the core, the volumetric fission heat source becomes a function of the axial coordinate, z, only: q ( z) = w 2.405r ~ R π z cos H f f Σ f φ0 J 0 ~ Slide No 20
21 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (6) There are numerous factors that perturb the power distribution of the reactor core, and the above equation will not be valid For example fuel is usually not loaded with uniform enrichment At the beginning of core life, higher enrichment fuel is loaded toward the edge of the core in order to flatten the power distribution Other factors include the influence of the control rods and variation of the coolant density Slide No 21
22 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (7) All these power perturbations will cause a corresponding variation of temperature distribution in the core A usual technique to take care of these variations is to estimate the local working conditions (power level, coolant flow, etc) which are the closest to the thermal limitations Such part of the core is called hot channel and the working conditions are related with socalled hot channel factors Slide No 22
23 Power Generation in Nuclear Reactor Cores (8) One common approach to define hot channel is to choose the channel where the core heat flux and the coolant enthalpy rise is a maximum Working conditions in the hot channel are defined by several ratios of local conditions to coreaveraged conditions These ratios, termed the hot channel factors or power peaking factors will be considered in more detail in coming lectures However, it can be mentioned already here that the basic initial plant thermal design relay on these factors Slide No 23
24 Principles of FluidFlow and Heat Transfer Heat Conduction Laminar and Turbulent Flows SolidFluid Heat Transfer for SinglePhase Flows Slide No 24
25 Heat Conduction (1) Heat conduction refers to the transfer of heat by means of the molecular interactions The central role in heat conduction plays the Fourier law: ( r, t ) = T ( r, t) q λ ( ) here q r,t is the heat flux vector at location r and time t, T(r,t) is the local temperature and λ is the thermal conductivity Slide No 25
26 Heat Conduction (2) A nonstationary heat balance in a finite volume dv is as follows: z q z +dq z q x q y q x +dq x q y +dq y y x q z q dydzdt + q dxdzdt + q dxdydt + q dxdydzdt x y z ( q + dq ) dydzdt ( q + dq ) dxdzdt ( q + dq ) dxdydt = ρc dtdxdydz x x y y z z p Slide No 26
27 Heat Conduction (3) Equation can be simplified as q dxdydzdt dq dydzdt x dq dxdzdt y dq dxdydt z = ρc p dtdxdydz and dividing by dxdydzdt q q x y q z q = ρc x y z or p T t ρc p T t = q q ρ c p T t = q + λ T Slide No 27
28 Heat Conduction (4) In general case, when solid properties are timeandspace dependent, the conduction equation can be written as, t [ ρ( r, t) c( r, t) T ( r, t) ] [ λ( r, t) T ( r, t) ] = q ( r, t) This equation can be solved if proper initial and boundary conditions are specified: Initial conditions specify the temperature distribution at initial time, typically at t = 0, e.g. T(r,0) = f(r) is a given function Boundary conditions describe the temperature behaviour at the boundary. They are of four different kinds, described below Slide No 28
29 Heat Conduction (5) Boundary conditions: Of the first kind (Dirichlet b.c.) when temperature value is given at the boundary, e.g., T ( r, t) = ϕ( r, t) r r= B Of the second kind (Neuman b.c.) when the heat flux at the boundary is given, e.g., q ( r t) ( r, t) T, λ = φ( r, t) r= rb n Of the third kind (Newton b.c.) with convective heat transfer T λ n ( r, t) r= r B = r= r B [ ( ) ( ) ] r, t T r, t * h T r= r B f r= r B Slide No 29
30 Heat Conduction (6) Boundary conditions (cont ed) Of the fourth kind when two solids are in contact, T Example: ( r t) = T ( r, t) T and λ ( r, t) T ( r, t) 1 2 1, = r 2 1 λ2 = rb r= rb n r= r B Steadystate heat conduction through an infinite cylindrical wall. Figure below shows the geometry and the boundary conditions of the case considered in the present example. n r= r B q T f r 1 r 2 r Slide No 30
31 Heat Conduction (7) Conduction equation becomes: d dr r dt dr = 0 T = C ln r + D And the boundary conditions give the constants C and D: dt dt λ = q, λ = h T r= r dr r= r dr r= r 1 2 ( Tf ) 2 C λ r 1 C λ r 2 = = q r1 q, C = λ h ( C ln r + D T ) 2 f, D C = λ hr 2 C ln r 2 + T f D = T f + q r1 λ λ hr2 + ln r 2 Slide No 31
32 Heat Conduction (8) The solution can be thus written as: q r q r q r q r r q r1 T = ln r + ln r2 + + T f = ln + + T λ λ hr λ r hr 2 2 f Slide No 32
33 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (1) To describe the fluid motion, the basic laws for conservation of mass, momentum and energy are invoked For incompressible (e.g. with constant density) flows the equations are as follows: Mass Momentym Energy div( v) = 0 Dv ρ Dt DH ρ Dt = ρg + τ p Dp = + div T Dt ( λ ) + Φ Slide No 33
34 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (2) The majority of fluids obey the Newton s eqation that relates the stress tensor in terms of the strain tensor. Such fluids are termed as the Newtonian fluids τ = µ [ ( ) ] T v + v For a onedimensional laminar flow (e.g. in pipes), the stressstrain relation becomes: dr dv z τ = µ Slide No 34
35 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (3) Assuming laminar, stationary, adiabatic flow of a Newtonian fluid in a vertical tube, the conservation equations reduce to: 0 = p + ρg + µ 2 v In cylindrical coordinates we have, 2 = 1 r d dr r d dr Slide No 35
36 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (4) Since the velocity in such a flow has only a one component, v z, the momentum conservation equation simplifies to: p ρ g µ which can be solved as: Π = 1 r d dr r dv dr z d dr r 2 2 dvz dvz Πr dvz Πr C Πr = Πr r = + C = + vz = + C ln r + dr dr 2 dr 2 r 4 D D = 2 2 ΠR ΠR r v z = R 2 Slide No 36
37 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (5) The average velocity in the tube can be found as U 1 πr 2 0 R v z ( r) 2πrdr = Π R 8µ 2 And the wall shear stress can be calculated as τ w = dvz ΠR τ ( r) µ = = r= R dr 2 r= R 4µ U R Slide No 37
38 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (6) There are two definitions commonly used in the literature to define friction factors: Darcy friction factor Fanning friction factor λ 4τ 2 ρu w 2 C f τ w = ρ U λ 4 Slide No 38
39 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (7) For laminar flow: λ 64 Re = C f = 16 Re Where Re is the Reynolds number Re = ρud µ Slide No 39
40 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (8) For turbulent flows in smooth tubes, Blasius proposed the following correlation: C f = Re For commercial tubes, which have wall roughness k, Colebrook devised the following formula 1 = 2.0log λ 10 k D Re λ Slide No 40
41 Laminar and Turbulent Flows (9) Colebrook s formula is implicit: this annoyance can be avoided by instead using the Haaland formula: 1 = 1.8log λ 10 k D Re Slide No 41
42 SolidFluid Heat Transfer for SinglePhase Flows (1) Heat transfer from the clad surface to the singlephase coolant is often described by the Newton s law of cooling: q = h ( ) T w T f Here h is the heat transfer coefficient. It can be found from the DittusBoelter correlation: Nu = 0.023Re 0.8 Pr 0.33 Nu = hd λ Pr = c p µ λ Slide No 42
