Investigation of dominant factors for evaluation of sodium leak and fire accident consequences by sensitivity analyses

Ohno, Shuji ; Hamase, Erina ; Kamide, Hideki 

Sensitivity analyses of sodium leak and fire are performed to identify the dominant factors for the accident consequences. The analyses with a multi-cell zone model code SPHINCS treat sodium spray and pool simultaneous combustion and heat-mass transfer behaviors in a large-scale two-cell geometry. Atmospheric gas pressure increase and temperature increase of floor steel plate below the sodium pool are analyzed as the figures of merit to be directly focused on. The analyses clarify the important and dominant factors of the phenomena in the accident sequence quantitatively, resulting in the acquirement of the knowledge to conduct the appropriate code validation activity and to discuss the uncertainty in the safety evaluation results.
