Safety demonstration tests using the HTTR (High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor) are being performed to verify the inherent safety features and to validate the numerical code for the safety assessment of the VHTR (Very High Temperature Reactor). The partial loss of coolant flow test was performed under the condition of the ATWS (Anticipated Transient without Scram). We are planning to perform the test of loss of coolant flow and stopping the vessel cooling system (VCS). The test of the loss of coolant flow as one of safety demonstration tests is carried out by tripping all gas circulators, and the stopping VCS test is performed continuously after the loss of coolant flow. The objective of this study is to evaluate the temperature distribution of the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) and the VCS during the tests. It is necessary to consider the effect of thermal radiation from the RPV for evaluation of temperature of the VCS and concrete vessel.
