Work Package 2
Objectives
To conduct controlled small/medium scale experiments involving supercritical CO2 with impurities to:
  1. determine the thermo-physical and thermodynamics data required for the formulation of the phase equilibrium model to be developed under WP 1.2 and its validation;
  2. determine fluid flow pattern maps required for the formulation of the heterogeneous discharge model to be developed in WP1.3 and its small scale validation;
  3. determine near-field solids particle size distribution and velocity profiles for validating the near-field dispersion model to be developed under WP 1.4;
  4. investigate erosion impact and expansion cooling effects of escaping CO2 on surrounding equipment.
