Abstract

A validation plan for utilization of an open source OpenFOAMr CFD-library in nuclear safety application has been created. The single phase solvers have been tested by taking part in a blind OECD/NEA benchmark. Near-wall treatment of selected turbulence models and wall heat transfer were validated in turbulent pipe flow with coupled heat transfer. Available two-phase solvers have been evaluated, enhanced for simulation of bubbly flows and tested.
