The 8th International Conference & Workshop REMOO-2018 with BTW
19 January 2018:
Delivery of Data necessary for the BTW calculations
20 April 2018:
Deadline for submission of calculation results
Participants in the optional Blind Test Calculation Workshop (BTW) must also be registered for the Conference, either as the Author/Co-Author (if also submitting the conference paper) or as the Participant of the Conference.
The BTW Registration Fee covers and undergoes rules as written for the Conference.
Discounted Registration Fees for the BTW are not available.
Additional Registration Fee
Conference Registration Form has to be used for optional registration for the BTW and may be downloaded by clicking the image on the left side.
In addition to the Conference Registration Fee, the BTW participant has to pay extra 90,00 EUR, which is the BTW additional Registration Fee.
Additionally, the BTW Registration Fee includes getting all necessary data for calculations, review and judging of calculated results by the Expert Committee, as well as getting specified measured data of the calculated transient after the BTW.

Experimental data that will be used in the blind test have been obtained in a 4 by 4 rod bundle and include pressure drops along the bundle divided into six sub-sections, rod clad temperatures at fourteen elevations and coolant temperatures at six elevations. For analysed experimental case, steady-state initial and boundary conditions as well as transient forcing functions have been recorded together with above-mentioned parameters.
A blind test benchmark of transient 2-phase flow simulation codes will be organized. The purpose is to give participants an opportunity to test their code capability to predict onset of dryout, post-dryout heat transfer phenomena as well as subsequent rewetting in a boiling water rod bundle geometry under realistic operational conditions.
Experimental results will be shown during the conference. A summary presentation will be given by Expert Committee to show the blind benchmark results obtained by participants in comparison to measurements.
An anonymous participation in the blind test benchmark is possible. To this end a potential participant should inform the organisers and provide a code name for himself/herself that will be known only to the participant and to the organisers. This code name will be used in all public presentations of the benchmark results.
Each participant will receive a Certificate of Participation and the best simulation will be awarded by a Trophy.
Registered benchmark participants will obtain:
The task of the participants will be to perform calculations based on provided data and to submit to the organisers the computed results at locations as specified and using a predefined format. In addition, a short description of the used code(s) will be required. Selection of the calculation codes and tools are free. The participants will also have to personally present their results during the workshop.
