Status and perspectives of CFD


During the last decades, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has known a very rapid development both in the development and validation of models and in computational capacities. This paper aims at describing this evolution and more especially its impact in the field of nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics for both design and safety studies applications. The OECD/NEA/WGAMA CFD task group has been very active in this field over the past two decades. Despite these important developments, only a rather limited number of safety demonstrations are currently based on CFD computations. The limitations still hindering a larger use, and perspectives for progress in this field, will be outlined.
