Kimura, Nobuyuki; Kamide, Hideki; Nagasawa, Kazuyoshi*; Emonot, P.*

A quantitative evaluation on thermal striping is of importance for reactor safety. In this study, sodium and water experiments of parallel triple jets configuration were performed. For these experiments, numerical simulations were carried out to evaluate the transfer characteristics of temperature fluctuation from fluid to structure. The analysis code, called Trio-U, used in the study has been developed at the CEA in France. In the simulations, the calculated time-averaged temperature distributions in fluid and structure were close to the experimental results in sodium and water. The power spectrum densities of temperature fluctuation in fluid and structure were also in good agreements between the experiments and calculations. Furthermore the calculated decay characteristics of temperature fluctuation from fluid to structure were in good agreements with the experimental results.
