1. NAME AND TITLE
PADLOC: A One-Dimensional, Time-Dependent Program for Calculating Coolant and Plateout
Fission Product Concentrations in a Network of Pipes.
General Atomic Company, San Diego, California.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran IV; UNIVAC.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The one-dimensional computer program PADLOC is designed to analyze steady-state and time-dependent plateout of fission products in an arbitrary network of pipes. The problem solved is one of
mass transport of impurities in a fluid, including the effects of sources in the fluid and in the plateout
surfaces, convection along the flow paths, decay, adsorption on surfaces (plateout), and desorption
from surfaces. These phenomena are governed by a system of coupled, nonlinear partial differential
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
The solution is achieved by a) linearizing the equations about an approximate solution, employing
a Newton-Raphson iteration technique, b) employing a finite-difference solution method with an
implicit time integration, and c) employing a substructuring technique to logically organize the systems
of equations for an arbitrary flow network.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study has been made by RSIC of typical running times for PADLOC.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
The code is operable on the UNIVAC computer.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A Fortran IV compiler is required.
