A numerical study on parameters affecting boric acid transport and chemistry within fuel corrosion deposits during crud induced power shift (2013-05-24)Crud buildup within Pressurized Water Reactors with or without power uprates has led to axially downward shift in power production. This shift in power has been defined as Axial Offset Anomaly (AOA). Boric acid, which is ...
A study of solute transport of radiolysis products in crud and its effects on crud growth on PWR fuel pin (2011-05-25)This research examines the effect of radiolysis species (H2, O2, and H2O2) upon crud deposition and growth and also the effect of their concentration within the crud. A 3-D transient diffusion model has been developed to ...
