Based on the outside cooling of the Passive Containment Cooling System (PCCS), a simplified containment mathematical model was built and was numerically solved. Air circulation driven by natural forces for a steady condition along with the coupled thermal-hydraulic phenomena was then obtained and analyzed. Variations of humid air temperature and velocity, water film sub-cooling and heat fluxes along the flow direction were discussed and driving forces were compared to obtain the ranked important phenomena of the PCCS outside cooling. The conclusions are significant to reasonably understand the PCCS outside transport phenomena.
