The experience of an industrial company
Pour le Groupe Interactions Fluide-Structure de la Coordination, Thermohydraulique de la Division R & D d'Electricité de France
The goal of the paper is to illustrate the experience of a company in the field of industry in solving mechanical problems related to the dynamics of a fluid coupled to a structure. We proceed by describing the strategies used by Electricité de France (EDF) to face five problems related to the production of electricity: cracking of hydraulic turbines, improvement of piping systems performances, hydrodynamic instabilities of safety valves, tube damage in steam generators, and eventually the risk of a Loss Of Coolant Accident (LOCA).
