This report fulfills the M3 milestone M3FT-12PN0810041, “Report on Realistic Temperature Profiles”, under Work Package FT-12PN081004. As part of the Used Fuel Disposition Campaign of the Department of Energy (DOE), visual inspections and temperature measurements were performed on two storage modules in the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Station’s Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI). The inspection procedure included surface temperature measurements on one end of the DSC within the storage module. The data obtained in the inspections at Calvert Cliffs provide an opportunity to...
As part of the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) Reactor Conversion program, work is underway to analyze and validate a new fuel assembly for the University of Missouri Research Reactor (MURR). The Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) design currently under investigation is a significant departure from the current High Enriched Uranium (HEU) design. This includes a change in the fuel meat from U-Al dispersion to a monolithic U-10Mo composition. Additionally, the proposed LEU plates are 25% thinner than the current HEU plates. These design changes increase the potential for coolant flow induced...

It always happens at the last minute. My simulations have been run and converged and are ready to be presented for tomorrow morning's board meeting. Then it happens... I try to create a plot of the temperature variation along a line in my STAR-CCM+ simulation 5 minutes before the end of my day and I find my data is scattered all over the place! There's no way I could possibly present this result! Argh!!! Thankfully, my buddy "Steve" came to the rescue. Now if you've never been introduced to Steve, you are missing out! Steve is the "go-to" guy whenever you are having difficulties setting up or...
B-Wageningen screw series is one of the oldest propellers. Due to its simplicity is one of the most frequently used. With several polynomials describing it we could create new marine propeller. If someone fell into in the twenty-first century to use the latest technology and software cad / cam we can create a parametric 3D geometric model of the screw. Then we performed CFD studies and see how it behaves in a stream of water, and find the right parameters for a given screw ship contracted speed. In work I will try to improve that CFD calculation it’s equal to B-Wageningen hydrodynamics series...
An analytical study on air flow effects and resulting dynamics on the PACE Formula 1 race car is presented. The study incorporates Computational Fluid Dynamic analysis and simulation to maximize down force and minimize drag during high speed maneuvers of the race car. Using Star CCM+ software and mentoring provided by CD – Adapco, the simulation employs efficient meshing techniques and realistic loading conditions to understand down force on front and rear wing portions of the car as well as drag created by all exterior surfaces. Wing and external surface loading under high velocity runs of...
Aim: To analyze the influence of the needle type, insertion depth, and irrigant flow rate on irrigant flow pattern, flow velocity, and apical pressure by ex-vivo based endodontic irrigation computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis. Methods: Human upper canine root canal was prepared using rotary files. Contrast fluid was introduced in the root canal and scanned by computed tomography (CT) providing a three-dimensional object that was exported to the computer-assisted design (CAD) software. Two probe points were established in the apical portion of the root canal model for flow velocity and...
This paper presents a CFD model for predicting solid particle distribution in a stirred tank. The tank is operated at the “just suspended” condition, which is difficult to model due to the high variation of solid concentration within the vessel. The concentration of solid particles is high near the base of the vessel and low at the top near the free surface. The ability to predict the “just suspended”condition is very important in industrial applications as it determines the lowest power input necessary to suspend the solid particles.In this work the Eulerian Multiphase Model implemented in...
