ナトリウム冷却高速炉(SRF)において、炉心溶融を含むシビアアクシデント時の安全性強化のため、炉内冷却機器の設計と運用の最適化が重要である。SFRの炉容器を模擬した1/10縮尺水試験装置を用いて、原子炉容器内の自然循環現象を把握する水試験を実施している。本報では粒子画像流速計測法(PIV)によって計測した炉容器内の自然循環流動場について報告する。炉心燃料の20%が下部プレナムのコアキャッチャ上に一様に堆積した場合に、浸漬型熱交換器を運転する条件で試験を実施した。PIV計測の結果、下部プレナム及び上部プレナムの中心付近で上昇流を確認した。また、上部プレナムでは炉壁近傍、下部プレナムでは炉心最外層から下降流が発生することを確認した。さらに温度場と速度場の関連性を検討することで、炉容器内の自然循環現象を把握した。これらの結果より、浸漬型DHX運転時に自然循環冷却パスが確立していることを確認した。

The water experiments using a 1/10 scale experimental apparatus simulating the reactor vessel of SFR were conducted to investigate the natural circulation phenomena in a reactor vessel. In this paper, the natural circulation flow field in the reactor vessel was measured by the Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) method. The PIV measurement was carried out under the operation of the dipped-type direct heat exchanger (DHX) installed in the upper plenum when 20% of the core fuel fell to the lower plenum and accumulated on the core catcher. From the results of PIV measurement, it was quantitatively confirmed that the upward flow occurred at the center region of the lower and upper plenums. In addition, the downward flows were confirmed near the reactor vessel wall in the upper plenum and through outermost layer of the simulated core in the lower plenum. Moreover, the relationship between the temperature field and the velocity field was investigated in order to understand the natural circulation phenomenon in the reactor vessel. From the above results, it was confirmed that the natural circulation cooling path was established under the dipped-type DHX operation.
