2D numerical simulation of a low Mach nuclear core model with stiffened gas using FreeFem++

Abstract : We investigate a simplified model describing the evolution of the coolant within a nuclear reactor core (e.g. of PWR type). This model is named LMNC (for Low Mach Nuclear Core) and consists of the coupling between three equations of different types together with boundary conditions specific to the nuclear framework. After several articles dedicated to dimension 1, we present in this paper some monophasic two-dimensional numerical results when the fluid is modelled by the stiffened gas law describing the pure liquid phase. The underlying numerical strategy is based on the Finite-Element software FreeFem++.
