Modelling the effective thermal conductivity in the near-wall region of a packed pebble bed / Werner van Antwerpen Van Antwerpen, Werner (North-West University, 2009)Inherent safety is claimed for gas-cooled pebble bed reactors, such as the South African Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR), as a result of its design characteristics, materials used, fuel type and physics involved. ...
Van Antwerpen, Werner (North-West University, 2007)The emergence of closed-loop Brayton cycle power plants, such as the PBMR, resulted in the need to simulate start-up transients for industrial multi-stage axial flow compressors operating at subsonic conditions. This ...
