Parametric study on an outlet plenum of a PBMR type gas cooled nuclear reactor has been carried out using three-dimensional Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations. Shear stress transport turbulence model is used for analysis of turbulence. Two geometric parameters are selected, namely, displacement on the horizontal line and angle of rotation about the center of gravity of the roof support block. Pressure drop and uniformity of flow distribution in the outlet plenum have been considered as the performance parameters of an outlet plenum of the PBMR. The results show that the performance parameters are affected considerably by the location of the roof support block.
