Title: General Electric Company analytical model for loss-of-coolant analysis in accordance with 10CFR50 appendix K, amendment No. 1: calculation of low-flow film-boiling heat transfer for BWR LOCA analysis

Abstract

A model has been developed to calculate the heat transfer coefficient under low flow film or pool boiling conditions in the BWR geometry. The model includes the heat transferred by convection due to the vapor boundary layer and that transferred by radiation between the high temperature surface and the liquid. The model is verified against a range of single rod and full-scale rod bundle data. These data confirm the applicability of the model for a range of conditions postulated to occur during the BWR loss-of-coolant accident.
