Modeling of Coolant Flow Within the Spent Fuel Storage Pool of a VVER 440 Reactor

Open access


The article deals with modelling of coolant flow within the spent fuel storage pool of a VVER 440 reactor. The spent fuel storage pool is modelled in a state of standard reactor operation. The coolant heating from the remaining thermal power of stored spent fuel assemblies was also modelled.
