In this paper, a model of bubble transport at entrance nozzle has been developed based on theoretical and computational methods. For this purpose, a three-dimensional analysis of dynamic bubbles behavior has been carried out by using one-way bubble tracking method which is specified to a bubble flow under a low void fraction. A commercial CFD tool, FLUENT Ver. 6.3.26 is used for three-dimensional flow field analyses. Then the gas accumulation at a high pressure plenum (HPP) of sodium-cooled fast rector has been quantitatively-assessed by implementing the developed model in SYRENA code. Furthermore, gas elimination (bubble removal) systems have been considered and the quantitatively-assessment has been carried out in order to investigate the effect of each measure to the accumulation of gas at the HPP.
