Testing centers activities: Flow Induced Vibration tests - Optimization of Power Plant Components (e.g. MAGALY, HYDRAVIB, RJH benches)

Components in nuclear power plants (NPPs) must be capable of withstanding flow-induced vibrations. Framatome's Integral Hydraulic Tests for Power Generation Plants validates and optimizes component design using flow-induced vibration tests. The relevant physical phenomena are analyzed and ranked. This allows us to select the laws of similitude and nondimensional numbers in order to scale and design an appropriate test rig model. The test rig model represents the following physical phenomena.
