Simulation of condensation in the presence of noncondensible gases using the French thermal hydraulic code cathare Conference Paper uri icon


  • In the following investigation, a simulation of the University of California, Berkeley, Condensation Studies was performed using the CATHARE V1.3 U 1 thermal hydraulic computer code to model the phenomena of condensation in a verticle test section. Bulk steam/gas temperature, condensing tube heat flux, and local overall heat transfer coefficients compare well with that of the experiment. Cooling jacket bulk temperature profiles were also evaluated.
