The EAGLE experimental program is dedicated to show experimental evidences supporting a safety logic eliminating the recriticality issue in the core disruptive accidents (CDAs) of sodium-cooled fast breeder reactors. In order to confirm an inherent nature of early fuel escape from the core region, both in-pile (using IGR) and out-of-pile experiments have been performed in the program. This presentation shows the preliminary interpretation of the second integral experiment, in which fuel discharge through a duct-type escape path (initially filled with sodium) was investigated using about 8kg of molten fuel. Energy insertion in this second experiment was smaller than that in the first experiment. The duct-wall failure timing was a little delayed compared with that in the first experiment, and the fuel discharged through the duct intermittently.
