In the framework of the European research program POOLTHY (Pool Thermal-Hydraulics in Passive Heat Removal Systems), the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Energy Conversion (DINCE) of the University of Rome “La Sapienza” provides a theoretical and experimental contribution to analyze thermal-hydraulic aspects of heat removal through boiling in pools, of relevance for passive-type heat removal systems. This contribution includes the study, the design and the construction of an experimental facility (QUSCOCS) and the implementation of an experimental campaign. In particular, the heat removal system foreseen in the MARS nuclear plant (designed by DINCE) has been adopted as reference system for the design of the QUSCOCS test section. The experimental facility will be utilized to optimize the full-scale design of the MARS passive-type decay heat removal system, and to obtain reliable experimental data related to natural circulation in transient conditions.
