Improved nuclear safety and reliability through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation

A review of US nuclear power plant pipe safety recorded over 4,000 pipe failures in 36 years, with 2,247 leaks detected after the pipe had ruptured. In this white paper, you’ll learn how engineers can use computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation to improve the reliability and safety of equipment and piping in nuclear power plants.

Download the white paper to discover how using CFD software can:

  • Enable significant improvements to nuclear power plant reliability and safety

  • Prevent unplanned plant outages, equipment damage, radiation leaks and worker fatalities

  • Provide engineers with a better understanding of supersonic-stream-jet phenomena, which occurs when pipes rupture

  • Identify the root causes when trouble arises at nuclear power plants while explaining the phenomena
