Numerical simulation on a full scale model of a cooling pond for spent nuclear fuel has been conducted. The detailed flow and temperature field of the three dimensional domain reveals the interaction between buoyancy and convection dominated fluid streams. The effect of flow recirculation on the temperature distribution has been analysed. Parametric studies by varying the inlet flow and heat generation highlight that CFD can provide very useful insight into the flow development of such complex situations
