|Title:||Comparison of CFAST and FDS for Fire Simulation With the HDR T51 and T52 Tests|
|Published:||March 01, 2002|
|Abstract:||This work uses three methods: hand calculations, a zone model (CFAST), and a computational fluid dynamics code (FDS), to examine two fire tests from the HDR facility, a decommissioned reactor containment building in Germany. The two tests, T51.23 and T52.14, used different fuels, propane gas and a hydrocarbon solvent, and occurred in two quite differeny locations, low in the containment and just below the containment operating deck, respectively.|
