Modeling of the FRM II core
highly enriched uranium (HEU) to lower enriched uranium. This program is part of worldwide efforts to minimize the usage of HEU in research reactors. For this reason, a parameter study is set up in order to identify possible and compatible FRM II core designs for conversion. The working group “Reactor Physics” at FRM II is actively working on developing new core designs for the conversion of the FRM II. In order to reach the goal of a core with the lowest enrichment possible, a parameter study is set up that aims to identify possible and compatible FRM II core designs. As a first essential step, several 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes for use in high performance research reactors are available to perform a code-to-code verification based on experimental results. Within this thesis, the potential of Ansys Fluent for the FRM II core will be explored. You will get familiar with the physics of modelling fluids with the Navier-Stokes equation, the intricacies of the simulation program and the FRM II core. You will develop and verify suitable postprocessing tools and compare results by Fluent and Ansys CFX.
