Development of experimental method for self-wastage behavior in sodium-water reaction; Development of test rig (SWAT-2R) and study for experimental procedure

Abe, Yuta  ; Shimoyama, Kazuhito ; Kurihara, Akikazu 

In case of water leak from a penetrated crack on a tube of steam generator in the sodium cooled fast reactor (SFR), self-wastage, that increases the size of leak, may take place by corrosion related to chemical reaction between sodium and water. For the safety evaluation of the accident, JAEA has been developing the analytical method of self-wastage using the multi-dimensional sodium-water reaction code. This report describes the development of new experimental rig (SWAT-2R). SEAT-2R enables to examine corrosion effecting factors that were ambiguous in the previous studies. The report includes description of development of micro-leak test piece, examination of experimental procedure. The results will provide fundamental data for validation of the self-wastage analytical method.
