Rapid heating tube rupture simulation experiments in case of sodium-water reaction in steam generator of sodium-cooled fast reactor

Umeda, Ryota; Kurihara, Akikazu; Shimoyama, Kazuhito

Overheating tube rupture of adjacent tubes arises from water/steam leak in steam generators of sodium-cooled fast reactors. It is very important to predict the tube wall stress (tube wall temperature) with a high degree of accuracy on evaluation of overheating tube rupture, and is crucial to estimate quantitatively material strength standard which is one of the major influencing factor. Therefore, in present study, the authors carried out tube rupture experiments with rapidly-heating which were simulated the tube thermally-affected by sodium-water reaction jet, and evaluated quantitatively failure hoop stress and failure time. Then, the authors confirmed that existing stress strength standard was applicable to thin diameter and thick-walled single tube in case of sodium-water reaction exceeding 1300$$^{circ}$$C under practical steam generator operation conditions.
