In the following investigation, a virtual noding scheme is used with RELAP5/MOD3.2 to capture thermal stratification effects in a small-break loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) simulation. A three-dimensional code (CFD-ACE) is also been used to observe the stratification effects in a similar situation. Stratification temperature differences of the simulations compare well with that of the experiment. The Froude number was also evaluated.
