The conceptual design of an advanced sodium-cooled fast reactor (named JSFR) is currently carried out by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA). In general, a large-scale nuclear reactor (approximately 1.5 GWe class) tended to increase in the number of loops (e.g., four loops in Super Ph$'e$nix and APWR), while the JSFR adopts a two-loop cooling system that enables significantly reducing a plant construction cost resulting from decreasing in material amount of the nuclear steam supply system and in the reactor building volume. This paper describes technological feasibility of the two-loop cooling system in JSFR; especially, focused on flow-induced vibration of piping, safety analysis and decay heat removal system.
