Abstract
In the context of the stress tests that have to be applied to nuclear power plants, this work presents the study of the flooding processes of the service galleries of a nuclear plant caused by a hypothetical failure of some of the pipes of the Essential Services Water System (ESWS). To assess the flood propagation along the galleries, two-dimensional hydraulic modelling tools, based on the solution of the shallow water equations with the finite volume method, were used. Due to the complexity and...
