Abstract or Summary
  • Steam interfacial condensation in a core makeup tank was simulated using the code RELAP5/MOD3 version 8.0 to predict the violent pressure oscillation phenomena in a core makeup tank. Six base cases were carried out to study the effects of back pressure and of vacuum conditions produced in the core makeup tank by rapid steam condensation. The effect of varying the liquid conduction thermal layer thickness was studied. In addition, the code's ability to predict condensation heat transfer was evaluated. Violent pressure oscillations were found in the early period of a transient. The violent pressure oscillations had no effect on the total amount of injection water from core makeup tank. The conduction thermal layer thickness was found to only effect the liquid temperature history. The current version of RELAP5/MOD3 was found to be incapable of dealing with the condensation heat transfer problem in which the volume liquid temperature is lower than the temperature of the heat structure which is connected to that hydraulic volume.
