Study the physics of the flow in the decay heat inlet pen Examine the LES solution of the code Star-CD for the natural/mixed convection cases. Validate further the analytical wall functions developed at University of 4 Coaxial heated cylinder study

LES validation and parametric test cases: Case1-Natural convection in square cavity (Ra=1.58 109) Case2-Natural convection in annular cavity (Ra=1.8109) Exp. Ref. McLeod 89 Case3- annular cavity single coaxial cylinder (Ra=2.381010) Case4- annular cavity with 3 coaxial cylinders (Ra=2.381010) Case5- Flow in a horizontal penetration (bulk Re=620,000). 5 Natural Convection in coaxial cylinders CASE-3: Ra=2.3810E+10 Case 2: Ra=1.810E+9 SGS visc/Molecular visc.<1 CASE-4:

Ra=2.3810E+10 6 Coaxial Cylinder effect of Prt and convection scheme Mean Temperature Y. Addad with Star-CD 7 Coaxial Cylinder effect of Prt and convection scheme Rms temperature fluctuations

14 Conclusions and future work LES of Industrial flow Complex geometry LES easier than smooth channel flow Responds to Industry needs: Thermal stresses, fatigue, Acoustics, FIV (vibrations) Cost-wise accessible when limited to sub-domain (next step RANS-Embedded LES ) Unstructured griding with professional software: Flexibility Possible Quasi-DNS near wall resolution at Medium Re numbers 2nd order accuracy may be sufficient.

Further developments and validation needed: More griding flexibility (total cell size control from presimulation RANS and/or coarse LES). Further testing of Polyhedral cells for LES (advantage: Energy conservation). Run a benchmark computations to compare LES predictions with different codes (in-house via commercial). 15 List of Publications A. Keshmiri, M.A. Cotton, Y. Addad, S. Rolfo, and F.
