CFD Flow Analysis on Water Reactor


The realm of nuclear engineering is undergoing significant evolution, with novel reactor designs promising enhanced efficiency and safety. At the forefront of this innovation is the Super Critical Water Reactor (SCWR), a reactor type that harnesses the unique properties of water at supercritical conditions to achieve advanced power generation capabilities. Our exploration focuses on a water reactor assembly, specifically tailored to evaluate the SCWR’s performance. Intriguingly, the developmental foundation of this reactor draws inspiration from NASA’s research, hinting at the interdisciplinary nature of this endeavor.


Through the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) steady flow analysis, we aim to delve deep into the intricacies of the SCWR’s operation. A standout feature of our reactor is its capability to operate with both supercritical and subcritical water concurrently within the vessel, a trait that necessitates rigorous analytical scrutiny.


By leveraging CFD, we seek to map the flow dynamics, understand potential challenges, and ascertain the operational feasibility of this ambitious reactor design. This endeavor is not just a testament to the cutting-edge advancements in nuclear technology but also a pursuit to make those advancements tangible, efficient, and safe in real-world applications.
