|Proceedings of IBRAE RAS, Issue 5: Models for Fission Products Release from Irradiated UO2 Fuel|
Ed. by L.A. Bolshov, R.V. Arutyunyan
The main models of the mechanistic code MFPR are described. Exhaustive description of fissiongas behaviour in grain and out of grain is given in relation with individual validation results on analytical experiments under various conditions (steady irradiation, transient, post-irradiation annealing).
It is shown that microscopic defects in the UO2 crystal structure can strongly influence fissiongas transport out of grains and release from fuel pellets.
The mechanistic description of chemicallyactive-elements behaviour is also presented. It is based on complex association of diffusionvaporization
mechanism involving multi-phase and multi-component thermo-chemical equilibrium at the grain boundary with accurate calculation of fuel oxidation. Examples of application to integral experiments performed at high temperatures in oxidising and oxidising/reducing gas atmospheres, show the possibilities of the code in the frame of severe-accident interpretation.
The assumed target for the issue are students and specialists in nuclear materials research and NPP safety analysis.

|Proceedings of IBRAE RAS, Issue 4: Numerical methods to simulate shock wave processes in the two-phase mixtures|
Ed. by L. A. Bolshov, V. M. Goloviznin
The possibility of using the Piecewise-Parabolic-approximation Method (PPM) to solve the advection equation and hyperbolic-like systems is considered. New approaches to simulation of shockwave processes in two-phase media are described, namely, the application of non-linear difference schemes with correction of flows to calculations of two-phase compressible gas-dynamic flows. The possibility of simulation using the PPM and the exact Riemann solver of two-component and twophase compressible media, taking also into account the micro-inertia phenomenon, is discussed.
The assumed target for the issue are students and specialists in numerical methods for solving differential equations of mathematical phisics.

Ed. by L.A. Bolshov
The collection volume is devoted to the integrated approach for solving of computational fluid dynamics problems developed in Nuclear Safety Institute RAS. The approach includes: methods of construction of calculated areas and computing grids; new highly effective methods and algorithms for solving of computational fluid dynamics problems, and also results of testing of developed algorithms and numerical methods on experimental data and benchmark tests, accessible from the literature. The authors offer an original technique of construction of computing grids for areas, projected with the help modern CAD systems, effective approaches for modeling a turbulence both in 3D single-phase, and in twophase flows on enough detailed grids. The results of numerical simulation such important a class of appearances as bubble flows are submitted. The shown level of agreement between numerical predictions and experimental data specifies effectiveness of the offered approach. The book is recommended for the experts in the field of nuclear engineering and adjacent areas.

|Proceedings of IBRAE RAS Issue 2: Numerical Investigations of Naturally-convective Flows in Solidifying Liquid|
Ed. by L.A. Bolshov, V.F. Strizhov
In the course of performed investigations several important outcomes were achieved and a series of interesting mechanisms were identified that may be of use while developing simplified codes for analysis of individual severe-accident phases for cases of retention of molten fuel-containing masses inside the vessel. The first section describes numerical methods for solution of 2D hydrodynamics problems for solidifying liquid, the second section provides the results of parametric numerical investigation of main heat- and masstransfer mechanisms of heat-generating liquid for the case of melt retention by reactor vessel. The attention is focused on studying major heat- and mass-transfer mechanisms of heat-generating liquid taking account of phase transitions through the application of a computational algorithm based on the fictitious-area method under “flow function, vorticity” variables. Effectiveness of calculations, being an advantage of the approach used, enables application of a unified computational algorithm within arbitrary areas for the category of problems under consideration. Owing to its originality and efficiency, the offered approach may be recommended to specialists of nuclear-power industry and adjacent areas.

|Proceedings of IBRAE RAS Issue 1: Models for the Fuel Rod Materials Interactions during Reactor Core Degradation under Sever Accident Conditions at NPP (in English)|
Ed. by L.A. Bolshov
A set of mechanistic models for the main degradation phenomena: cladding oxidation, hydrogen absorption and mechanical deformation, UO2 and ZrO2 dissolution by molten Zr, was developed in the Nuclear Safety Institute (IBRAE) RAS and combined in the code package SVECHA. In order to be applied to mechanistic modeling of various single-rod degradation experiments (including the FZK QUENCH tests), the models were tightly coupled in the advanced mechanistic code SVECHA/QUENCH. The models were also implemented in various system-level SA codes: ICARE2 (IRSN, France), SCDAP/RELAP5 (NRC, USA), the Russian SA codes RATEG/SVECHA and SOCRAT. The book presents the main models of the code package SVECHA and the single-rod code SVECHA/QUENCH.
