This paper presents a theoretical study of the velocity field in the annulus formed between the Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) and the shroud of a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) under normal and accident flow conditions. Simplified geometry and an ideal irrotational flow are assumed to solve the problem using velocity potentials.
