  • Recent advancements in reactor safety analysis require more detailed predictions of two-phase flow behavior. Therefore, a transient calculation method has been developed for two-dimensional two-phase flow using the two-fluid model. This method treats non-equilibrium two-phase flows by solving the partial differential equations of mass, momentum, and energy balances for each phase. With the finite difference method, which is widely used for two-phase flow analysis, difficulties are incurred when the finite difference of gas velocity is calculated between a node with two-phase mixture and one with single-phase water and no gas velocity. The present method employs the control volume formulation inmore » order to avoid this difficulty and it is designed to simulate local two-dimensional two-phase flow dynamics. The objective of this paper is to outline the fundamentals of the numerical calculation method and its capability of calculating two-dimensional discharge flow from a pipe. This calculation technique is able to treat effects of flow contraction at the pipe inlet and flow expansion at the exit upon discharge.« less
  • This paper documents the application of a new image processing algorithm, two-dimensional non-linear additive decomposition (NLAD), which is used to identify regions in a digital image whose gray-scale (or color) intensity is different than the surrounding background. Standard image segmentation algorithms exist that allow users to segment images based on gray-scale intensity and/or shape. However, these processing techniques do not adequately account for the image noise and lighting variation that typically occurs across an image. NLAD is designed to separate image noise and background from artifacts thereby providing the ability to consistently evaluate images. The decomposition techniques used in thismore » algorithm are based on the concepts of mathematical morphology. NLAD emulates the human capability of visually separating an image into different levels of resolution components, denoted as ''coarse'', ''fine'', and ''intermediate''. Very little resolution information overlaps any two of the component images. This method can easily determine and/or remove trends and noise from an image. NLAD has several additional advantages over conventional image processing algorithms, including no need for a transformation from one space to another, such as is done with Fourier transforms, and since only finite summations are required, the calculational effort is neither extensive nor complicated.« less
  • The purpose of this work is the development and testing of EXTREME, a new method for calculating the spatial dependence of the neutron density in nuclear systems described in two-dimensional Cartesian geometry. The energy dependence of the neutron density is approximated using the multipgroup treatment; the angular dependence uses the discrete ordinates technique. The resulting FORTRAN computer code is designed to handle an arbitrary number of spatial, energy, and angle subdivisions. Any degree of scattering anisotropy can be handled by the code for either external source or fission systems. The basic approach is to (1) approximate the spatial variation ofmore » the neutron source across each spatial subdivision as an expansion in terms of a user-supplied set of exponential basis functions; (2) solve analytically for the resulting neutron density inside each region; and (3) approximate this density in the basis function space in order to calculate the next iteration flux-dependent source terms. In the general case the calculation is iterative due to neutron sources which depend on the neutron density itself, such as scattering interactions.« less
