Abstract

The thermal-hydraulic computer code ATHLET (Analysis of THermal‐hydraulics of LEaks and Transients) is used for analysis of anticipated and abnormal plant transients, including safety analysis of Light Water Reactors (LWRs), Russian Graphite-Moderated High Power Channel-type Reactors (RBMKs) and SuperCritical Water-cooled Reactors (SCWRs). Efforts are being made to study the supercritical phenomena both analytically and experimentally. In this work, a numerical model was created in ATHLET to represent a supercritical water experimental test section and the ability of the code to predict the inside-wall temperature of the test section for low and moderate mass flux ranges was assessed.
