Numerical Simulation of the Thermal Performance of a Dry Storage Cask for Spent Nuclear Fuel
AbstractIn this study, the heat flow characteristics and thermal performance of a dry storage cask were investigated via thermal flow experiments and a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. The results indicate that there are many inner circulations in the flow channel of the cask (the channel width is 10 cm). These circulations affect the channel airflow efficiency, which in turn affects the heat dissipation of the dry storage cask. The daily operating temperatures at the top concrete lid and the upper locations of the concrete cask are higher than those permitted by the design specification. The installation of the salt particle collection device has a limited negative effect on the thermal dissipation performance of the dry storage cask. View Full-Text
