CFD-modelling of subcooled boiling
Krepper, E.; Rzehak, R.; Lifante, C.; Frank, T.;
In this paper new developments in the framework of a common project simulating subcooled boiling are described. The computational model used combines the Euler / Euler two-phase flow description with heat flux partitioning. Main achievements were a comprehensive study of the boiling process itself and a better description of the interfacial area by coupling of wall boiling with a population balance model. The model extensions are validated and the present capabilities of CFD for wall boiling are investigated.
