Cooling profile of beryllium filter for small angle neutron scattering cryostat using CFD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The use and application of cryogenic storage for cooling purposes rapidly increasing. It's find their way to be apply in land, sea and space. The rise of usage of low temperature techniques is corresponding with the efficient usage of cryogenic liquids where the liquids boils at below ambient temperature. However, the designs of the cryogenic storage need to be optimize to ensure the efficiency of the system. In this paper, a cryostat for cooling of beryllium filters of a small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) instrument of TRIGA MARK II PUSPATI research reactor was investigated using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) package FLUENT 6.2. The simulation was focus on the cooling profile or temperature distribution of the beryllium filters via the thermal link from the cryogenic tank in the cryostat. The temperature simulation data are then compared against the experimental results. From the analysis the temperature profile shows agreement on the decrease of temperature compared to the experimental result.
