This paper addresses the numerical simulation of two-phase flow heat transfer among the tube bundles with tube support plate (TSP) of an integral type pressurized water reactor steam generator using RPI wall boiling model. The subcooled nucleate boiling phenomenon and the coupled heat transfer between the SG primary side and secondary side were obtained. Also, the effects of tube support plate (TSP) and the different inlet subcooling on the thermal-hydraulic characteristics of SG were studied. From the results of the present numerical simulation, it reasonably revealed the subcooled flow boiling occurred in the SG secondary side and the distributions of key parameters around TSP, elucidating that this model can provide useful information to the design of the steam generator.
