Method of Solving Problems of Two-Phase Heat- and Hydrodynamics with Sodium Coolant
- 19 Downloads
A consistent computational method of modeling complex shockwave processes in two-phase media in the presence of surface-tension forces that makes it possible to model boiling, evaporation, and condensation was developed. The results of modeling cavitation and Soda’s problem with sodium as well as modeling heat and mass transfer in a vertical channel in the presence of sodium boiling under forced lift are presented. Good agreement with experiment is shown.
