TRP 05. Modeling Corrosion in Oxygen Controlled LBE Systems with Coupling of Chemical Kinetics and Hydrodynamics
August 2001 - August 2004
Research Objectives & Methods
There were two subtasks to this research. The first subtask developed the necessary tools to predict the levels of oxygen and corrosion products close to the boundary layer using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling. The second subtask predicted the corrosion process kinetics between the LBE and structural materials by incorporating pertinent information from the first subtask.
