Multiphase Flow Dynamics 5: Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics

Nuclear thermal hydraulics is the science that provides knowledge and mathematical tools for adequate description of the process of transferring the fission heat released in materials due to nuclear reactions into its environment. Along its way to the environment the thermal energy is organized to provide useful mechanical work or useful heat. Properly arranged and controlled processes achieve this target. Improperly arranged processes or inappropriately controlled processes may lead to damage, losing the investment partially or totally. If power plants are designed so that in low-probability accidental processes only the investment is lost, we speak about safe nuclear power plants. Improperly designed power plants that contain the potential besides losing the investment to destroy the environment and human lives are not acceptable to human society. Nuclear thermal hydraulics is a substantial part of the engineering discipline called nuclear reactor safety. Nuclear reactor safety is not only a technical science. It contains the relations between society, with its mature and effective control mechanisms, and technology. Scientists and engineers alone cannot solve the problem of nuclear reactor safety. It is a technological and simultaneously a social problem, as is any problem associated with high-energy technologies. I will limit my attention in this work to the scientific part. After about 60 years research and practice, we know how to build technically safe nuclear power plants. The public attitude to this subject has had its up and downs. Now the world faces the problem of dramatically increasing oil and energy prices, making nuclear energy inevitable. At the same time, there is a generation change, and a large army of experienced nuclear engineers are retiring. The responsibility to transfer knowledge to the next generation is what drives me to write this book. I hope it will help young scientists and engineers in their professional life of designing better facilities than those created by my generation
