Abstract [en]

Coolant solidification is a phenomenon of potential safety importance for Liquid Metal Cooled Fast Reactors (LMFRs). Coolant solidification can affect local flow, heat transfer and lead to partial or complete blockage of the coolant flow paths jeopardizing decay heat removal function. It is also possible that reduced flow circulation may increase coolant temperature, counteract solidification and prevent complete blockage of the flow. Complex interactions between local physical phenomena of solidification and system scale natural circulation make modelling of solidification uncertain. Development and validation of adequate models requires validation grade experimental data. In this work we discuss results of analysis carried out in support of experiment development, specifically, design of a solidification test section and a test matrix for TALL-3D experimental facility (lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) thermal-hydraulic loop). The aim of the analysis is experimental design that satisfies requirements stemming from the process of model qualification. We focus on two aspects: (i) design of solidification test section (STS) for investigation of solidification phenomena in lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE), and (ii) effect of the STS pool on the system scale behavior of the TALL-3D facility. Selection of the STS characteristics and experimental test matrix is supported using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) and system thermal-hydraulic (STH) codes.
