A Study on LMFBR steam generator design without tube failure propagation in water leak events

Futagami, Satoshi; Hayafune, Hiroki; Fujimura, Ken; Sato, Mitsuru*

The major target performance of the SG for commercialized FBR is not only economic performance but also property protection performance. The straight double wall tube SG is one of the SG candidates for commercialized FBR, and other SG concepts were studied in this paper. In proposing an alternative SG, alternative technological measures with a double wall tube were investigated and included reinforcing the tube against wastage and quick detection of initial tube leaks. Alternative SG concept candidates for preventing tube failure propagation and mitigation of water leak accidents were proposed through a combination of technological measures. At the end of JFY 2010, the straight double wall tube SG will be decided upon as the result of R&D activities, and alternative SGs evaluated in feasibility studies. A plan for studying feasibility with the technological issues of the alternative SG was proposed.
