Abstract Heavy liquid metals are often considered as coolant fluids for fast nuclear reactors because of their physical and neutronic properties. Nevertheless, these fluids are not well known as ordinary fluids, such as air or water, and the use of reliable numerical tools for the simulation of turbulent heat transfer inside reactor cores refrigerated with liquid metals is still an open issue. In the present work we propose the use of a κ - ϵ - κ θ - ϵ θ turbulence model to improve the… CONTINUE READING
