Abstract

An OECD/NEA sub-group on Uncertainty Analysis in Modelling (UAM) for Design, Operation and Safety Analysis of Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors (SFR-UAM) has been formed under the NSC/WPRS/EGUAM to check the use of best-estimate codes and data. This work comes from the desire to design reactors with improved safety performance while preserving a sustainable source of energy at a rather low cost. Two SFR cores are being studied a large 3600MWth oxide core and a medium 1000MWth metallic core. In order to assess tools being used for studying these cores, various sub-exercises have been set up for what concerns neutronics with cell, sub-assembly, super-cell and core benchmarks under steady state conditions either at BOL conditions or at EOEC. A sub-assembly depletion benchmark is being set up before going into full core calculations with depletion. Since the objective is to define the grace period or the margin to melting available in the different accident scenarios and this within uncertainty margins, uncertainties of different origins (methods, neutronics, thermal-hydraulic, fuel behavior) once identified and evaluated will be propagated through. In order to ensure validity to these exercises, the sub-group incorporates some experimental validations on neutronics, thermal hydraulics, fuels and systems. This will be done with experiments from IRPhE et ICSBEP, SEFOR, THORS and the SUPER-PHENIX start-up transient programme.
