Abstract

Fluids are widely used for coolant in nuclear power plants, so it is necessary to understand the fluid properties and to appropriately control the fluids. The science that deals with various types of “flow” is called fluid dynamics. Since the coolant flow in a nuclear reactor has important effects on the thermal performance and the safety of the reactor, studying fluid dynamics is necessary for design work.
