Abstract

The designing of a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) validation facility for nuclear applications is presented. To satisfy validation requirements, high fidelity measurements are acquired and used as boundary conditions for the simulation, including geometry, wall temperatures and inlet flow parameters. The experimental apparatus is discussed along with instrumentation and uncertainty quantification. Some simulation results using these data as input are compared with the experimental results (or system response quantities, SRQs). The purpose of this presentation is to show the design of an apparatus for validation experiments and also to present some simulations that are used to ensure that sufficient input data has been acquired.
