Safety is an essential topic in the development process of nuclear power plant. Several Generation III and III+ reactor designs contain passive safety system to control accident without external power. An example is the Emergency Condenser (EC) of the KERENA reactor design. The EC removes heat from the Reactor Pressure Vessel in the case of design accidents. The experimental facility COSMEA at Helmhotz Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf (HZDR) was set up to investigate the flow morphology and heat transfer structure of condensation inside a slightly inclined tube. In this paper, the condensation process in COSMEA was simulated with the thermal hydraulic system codes ATHLET. The performance of the ATHLET heat transfer models were identified. The simulation results were compared against the experiments. The heat flux, condensation rate and temperature of cooling water during the condensation was analyzed. [less ▲]
