Abstract

© 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York. The Rayleigh density limit and its significance with regard to coalescence and growth of radiative bubbles is discussed. It is shown that taking into account the kind of radioactive decay, i.e. alpha or beta decay, the Rayleigh density limit results in a critical radius limit for the coalescence and growth of radiative bubbles. Because the size of bubbles is one of the most important parameters to be considered in transport and extraction technologies, the present study has important application for the computational modelling of tritium extraction from liquid Pb-16Li blankets for fusion reactor technologies.
