Scale Removal Cellular Automaton Oxidation Models of Metals in Lead Bismuth Eutectic

Document Type



Scale removal cellular automaton oxidation models of metals in lead bismuth eutectic have been proposed. The hydraulic effect of the high temperature and high-density LBE has been considered in one new mesoscopic scale removal model. A scheme is proposed to fitting the mesoscopic data with the experimental data. The results have been fitted with the experimental data and benchmarked with previous numerical solutions and experimental data and significant agreements have been obtained. The proposed scale removal model has been used to estimate long-term behaviors of the oxide layer growth considering scale removal effect.
