Analysis of the porous structure of an annular pebble bed reactor
(Atomic Energy Society of Japan, 2009)
The global galerkin finite element method as applied to the 1d beam equation: a systems approach
The paper focuses on the finite element solution of the fourth-order differential for an EulerBernoulli beam. In this approach the point point loads and concentrated moments are treated in a natural way as part of the ...
The flow and heat transfer in a packed bed high temperature gas-cooled reactor
Engineers are faced with two major challenges when carrying out the thermal-fluid design of a complex system consisting of many interacting components such as the PBMR power plant. The first challenge is to predict the ...
Using an effective viscosity to account for the effect of the walls on the pressure drop through an annular packed bed
The question arose whether the correlation for the pressure drop prescribed for cylindrical pebble bed reactors by the Nuclear Safety Commission (KTA) of Germany could still be applied to the proposed annular configuration ...
