Numerical and experimental prediction of the thermomechanical performance of pebble beds for solid breeder blanket

Abstract

In this paper, recent numerical modeling and experiment work for predicting the effective thermal and mechanical properties of solid breeder blanket pebble bed materials is presented. The numerical modeling is based on the micro-mechanics displacement method in conjunction with an iterative process of successive releasing of the contact force of particles… (More)
