Vers de nouvelles études en thermohydraulique diphasique pour les applications industrielles
Towards new studies in two-phase thermal-hydraulics for industrial applications
Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique, Grenoble
This paper gives a short presentation of the FASTNET team preliminary conclusions. This team tried to define a scientific strategy aimed at developing thermal-hydraulics in the nuclear and on-nuclear industry fields. The reflections were mainly conducted as a three stage process:
- the identification of industrial problems, whose better resolution rely on a knowledge improvement in thermalhydraulics,
- a state-of the-art analysis, which led to identify the actual limitations (and their origin) for the different components of the thermal-hydraulics expertise (physical rnodeling, numerical simulation, instrumentation, analytical and validation experiments),
- the proposition of a coherent strategy to develop expertise in all these fields of thermal-hydraulics.
This paper is a summarized version of a more detailed progress report. The work is still in progress...
