Abstract: A method is proposed for computing the upper bound on the local water temperature rise with respect to the bulk temperature in a spent fuel pool. The solution involves casting the continuity and momentum relationships in integral form in terms of the unknown velocity functions. The method of collocation is used to solve the problem. Computer application of this method shows it to be an efficient and cost-effective design tool.
