    • Analysis of boiling water reactor design and operating conditions effect on stability behaviour 

      Amselem Abecasis, Elias (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Royal Institute of Technology, 2010)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      It is well known that boiling water reactors can experience inadvertent power oscillations. When such instability occurs the core can oscillate in two different modes (in phase mode and out of phase mode). In the late 90’s ...
    • DNB and Void Fraction TRACE Model Validation with PSBT Experiments 

      Jara Heredia, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Kungliga Tecniska Högskolan, 2010)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      The aim of the thesis is the assessment and validation of numerical models for the prediction of detailed subchannel distribution and departure from nucleate boiling (DNB) to a full scale data on a prototypical PWR rod ...
    • Qualification of Spatial Coupling of System Reactor Simulators for BWR Stability 

      Alfonso Prieto-Puga, Elsa de (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Kungliga Tecniska Högskolan, 2008)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - confidentiality agreement
    • Trace code validation for natural circulation during Small Break LOCA in EPR-type reactor 

      Bertran i Moracho, Joan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Kungliga Tecniska Högskolan, 2010)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Open Access
      The PWR PACTEL test facility was built in Lappeenranta (Finland) to gain experience in thermal-hydraulics behavior of vertical steam generators used by EPR (European Pressurized Water Reactor) during SBLOCA (Small Break ...
