Open AccessOne of the key components regarding heat transfer and tritium inventories in deuterium-tritium nuclear fusion reactors is the (tritium) Breeding Blanket, called Test Blanket Module or TBM in ITER experiment. Several ...
Fradera, Jordi; Sedano, L.A.; Mas de les Valls Ortiz, Elisabet; Batet Miracle, Lluís (2011)
Restricted access - publisher's policyTritium self-sufficiency requirement of future DT fusion reactors involves large helium production rates in the breeding blankets; this might impact on the conceptual design of diverse fusion power reactor units, such ...
Numeric implementation of a nucleation, growth and transport model for helium bubbles in lead–lithium HCLL breeding blanket channels: Theory and code development Batet Miracle, Lluís; Fradera, Jordi; Mas de les Valls Ortiz, Elisabet; Sedano, L.A. (2011)
Restricted access - publisher's policyLarge helium (He) production rates in liquid metal breeding blankets of a DT fusion reactor might have a significant influence in the system design. Low He solubility together with high local concentrations may create the ...
Numerical analysis of MHD-thermofluid flows considering sandwich structures as applied to liquid breeding blankets for fusion technology Mas de les Valls Ortiz, Elisabet; Batet Miracle, Lluís; Medina Iglesias, Vicente César de; Fradera, Jordi; Sedano, L.A. (2011)
Restricted access - publisher's policyLead lithium flowing inside breeding blanket’s channels in a fusion reactor is subject to a Hartmann number of 104 and a Grashof number 10912. Since under such conditions buoyancy can be of the same order of magnitude ...
