Under simulated accident conditions, tees in the primary coolant loop of a
Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) can deviate from their original design purpose
and become separators that effectively remove core heat sink capacity. This method
of primary coolant removal is a phenomelogical subset of phase separation known
as liquid entrainment,...
A literature review of current phase separation publications was conducted. Data
sets were collected and compiled into a Two-Phase Flow Separation Database.
Examination of this database indicating a need for further investigation into the liquid
entertainment phenomena for smaller hot-leg to branch diameters and intermittent flow
regimes. A detailed analysis...
