Validation of a computational simulation method for evaluating thermal stratification in the reactor vessel upper plenum of fast reactors

Ohno, Shuji; Oki, Hiroshi*; Sugahara, Akihiro*; Ohshima, Hiroyuki

Validation of a numerical simulation method is carried out for thermal stratification phenomena in the reactor vessel upper plenum of advanced sodium-cooled fast reactors. The study mainly focuses on the fundamental applicability of commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes as well as an in-house code to the evaluation of thermal stratification behavior including the simulation methods such as spatial mesh distribution and RANS-type turbulence models in the analyses.
