This conference proceedings examines the most recent research and developments related to the impact of debris on emergency coolant recirculation.  Held in Albuquerque, New Mexico in February 2004, this proceedings had sessions on safety assessment and regulatory requirements, experimental work, analytical work, and industry solutions.  The proceedings present the papers presented as well as a summary of discussions that took place.





Analytical Work

Nuclear Energy Agency

Session 3 comprised six papers; four of them were presented in the workshop. The main topics dealt with the debris transport in water, the debris impact on pump performance, and break characterisation (break size and location) of pipes using fracture mechanics methods to determine the debris source term. The approaches to investigate water-borne debris transport were the following: calculate debris generation from the break location by using basic hydraulic equations, use computational fluid ...
