Figure 7. Steam velocity field calculated by computational fluid dynamics between four fuel rods immediately downstream of a mixing vane in the spacer grid. Results are compared between Optima3 (left) and a TRITON11 prototype (center). When injecting individual droplets into the steam flow, the total fraction of drops deposited on each fuel rod segment was calculated (right).
