  • Additional Experience

    Mr. Herranz's current activity is mainly focused on the study of condensation in different geometries and conditions from the theoretical point of view. In this regard, I developed a predictive model for the heat transfer in the vertical tubes of the passive cooling condenser of the SBWR containment under prototypical accident conditions. At present I am colaborating with the ongoing research in NEEP concerning condensation in the containment shell of the AP600 by assisting in the tests data rationalization and by developing a model capable to reproduce the experimental observations.
