Theoretical Modeling and Numerical Simulation of the Corrosion and Precipitation in Non-Isothermal Liquid Lead Alloy pipe/loop Systems

Document Type



A theoretical kinetic model based on the boundary layer theory was developed to investigate the corrosion/precipitation in non-isothermal lead alloy pipe/loop systems. The analytical expressions of the local corrosion/precipitation rate and the bulk concentration of the corrosion products were obtained by considering a turbulent core region and a laminar sub-layer. Numerical solutions were also obtained together with considering the effect of eddy mass diffusivity in lead alloy systems.
