Control of noble metal is one of the key technologies of radioactive waste vitrification to maintain stable operation. Though, the numerical modeling of noble metal behavior for CFD analysis was performed.
This model was evaluated by the vitrification test. The result showed that this model is able to quantify the mass balance of noble metal.
