Similitude Tests: Optimization of components and processes - Fluid-dynamic and thermal-hydraulic tests validate and optimize design
Framatome validates and optimizes component design using fluid-dynamic and thermal-hydraulic tests. The first step in optimizing the tests and costs is to identify the relevant physical phenomena. The most relevant laws of similitude and non-dimensional numbers for designing the test are then defined. The second step is to define the scale of the mock-up and the test fluid to reduce the costs.Product Sheet
