Near Field Simulation of Low Level Waste Water Released from Nuclear Power Plants in Rivers through Surface by CORMIX
CORMIX obtaining the approval from USEPA is widely used in the environmental evaluation of US inland nuclear power plants. Carry out 3-d simulation for the low level radioactive liquid effluent released from an inland nuclear power plant in rivers through surface by CORMIX. Compare the diluent effect of different discharge capacity (2 and 4 units) and different season (summer and winter). Dilution ratios of these four simulation conditions are all reach 10 at 500m downstream. The 0.1C0 isoconcentration line range of four units is much larger than two units. It is found from the concentration distribution of cross-section at 1km downstream that the diffusing vertically of effluent in summer is better than it in winter. The accuracy of the software will be confirmed by actual measurement.
