Modelling of flow boiling and the prediction of the critical heat flux using CFD-based methods
My research involves the identification, implementation and subsequent demonstration of improvements to the current state-of-the-art in “component-scale” modelling of wall boiling and CHF prediction in CFD codes with an emphasis on applications in nuclear reactors (under conditions of high-pressure turbulent flow boiling in non-circular geometries).
