Analysis of FCA VIII-2 fuel slumping experiments by SIMMER-III and SIMMER-IV

Ishida, Shinya ; Mizuno, Masahiro*

An advanced safety analysis computer code, SIMMER-III and SIMMER-IV, has been developed to investigate the complex phenomena under the core disruptive accidents in LMFRs. Fuel slumping experiments performed in the Fast Critical Assembly (FCA) VIII-2 facility were analyzed by SIMMER-III (two dimensions) and SIMMER-IV (three dimensions) in order to validate the neutronics model of the code for the disrupted core analysis. The results of the SIMMER-III and SIMMER-IV analysis (70-group constants from the unified cross-section set ADJ2000R, multi-group transport approximation for the anisotropic scattering, S8 approximation for the discrete-ordinate order) indicated that the SIMMER-III and SIMMER-IV simulated the FCA VIII-2 experiments with sufficient precision. In addition, the parameter surveys showed that the simulation of the FCA VIII-2 experiments with sufficient precision can be performed with the 18-group constants and S4 approximation for the discrete-ordinate order.
