Abstract

An experiment of steam and helium injection and mixing, stratification and helium enrichment due to condensation of steam in a tube bundle cooler is simulated with a CFD-code Fluent and a lumper parameter code APROS Containment. The experimental facility PANDA simulates a two part compartment connected with a corridor. The qualitative comparison with experimental results is shown.
