Outline Activities
The situation surrounding nuclear energy by the influence of the Fukushima accident has reached a major turning point. Further safety secure of nuclear power systems that using nuclear fission energy is required and development of new advanced reactor systems is needed. In particular, in order to make the third-generation light-water reactors and future light water reactors being safer and more reliable, and in order to realize a high environmental compatible next-generation reactor system, it is necessary for us to model the heat transfer and flow characteristics in multidimensional two-phase flow and to establish analysis methods in the thermal design of the reactor core and the safety evaluation at accidents over the entire system. For this reason, we conduct research, education and social activities on "heat transfer and flow characteristics in gas-liquid two-phase flow including phase change", based on clarification of the basic physical mechanism.
