4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
CONTEMPT4/MOD6 describes the response of multicompartment containment systems subjected to postulated loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) conditions. The program can accommodate both pressurized water reactor (PWR) and boiling water reactor (BWR) containment systems. Also, both design basis accident (DBA) and degraded core type LOCA conditions can be analyzed. The program calculates the time variation of compartment pressures, temperatures, and mass and energy inventories due to inter-compartment mass and energy exchange taking into account user-supplied descriptions of compartments, inter-compartment junction flow areas, LOCA source terms, and user-selected problem features. Analytical models available to describe containment systems include models for containment fans and pumps, cooling sprays, heat conducting structures, sump drains, PWR ice condensers, and BWR pressure suppression systems. CONTEMPT4/MOD6 also provides analytical models for hydrogen and carbon monoxide combustion within compartments and energy transfer due to gas radiation to accommodate degraded core type accidents.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Containment thermodynamic conditions of oxygen/nitrogen/hydrogen/carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide/steam/liquid water mixtures are determined by using modularized equation-of-state subroutines, tabulated water properties, and polynomial temperature fits for noncondensible gas properties. The numerics in the code are completely explicit, except for the predictor-corrector technique used to estimate the heat structure effects on compartment conditions, an implicit calculation of junction flow with inertia, and an optional implicit routine for junction flow calculation approaching pressure equilibrium.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Maxima of 999 lumped parameter compartments and 99 heat conducting structures using a variety of heat, transfer options and boundary conditions.
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study was done of running times at RSICC.
