Thermal Hydraulics and Safety of Innovative Nuclear Systems

KTH is the largest technical university in Sweden. Education and research cover a broad spectrum within natural sciences and engineering, as well as architecture, industrial engineering and management, urban planning, work science and environmental engineering. KTH has 13 344 fulltime equivalent students of whom 6 955 at Bachelor (first) level and 5 545 at Master (second) level. In addition 1 314 full-time equivalent students at doctoral studies (third) level and 3 900 employees.

The School of Engineering Sciences carries out a wide range of research at the international front line, from fundamental disciplines such as physics and mathematics, to engineering mechanics with applications such as aeronautics and vehicle engineering. We also offer University degree programs in Engineering Physics, Vehicle Engineering, ‘Engineering and Education’, and ‘Open Entrance’, as well as a number of International Masters Programs.

The Division of Nuclear Power Safety (NPS) performs research which encompasses nuclear reactor safety design, nuclear power plant system analysis, development of methods and models for deterministic and probabilistic safety analysis, experimental studies of nuclear power safety and multi-scale modeling of the relevant physical processes and phenomena. Important element of the research activity is the synergy between numerical and experimental studies of multi-phase flows, heat and mass transfer at different scales, ranging from the plant-scale system thermal-hydraulics, to component-scale multi-dimensional fluid dynamics, and down to phenomena-scale and direct numerical simulations. While advanced methods and tools exist for system and phenomenological analysis at individual scales, understanding of intricate processes and non-linear system behavior (as such may occur in complex engineering systems during abnormal transients and accidents) require a new analysis platform, which cuts across the multiple scales and couple multiple physics phenomena.
