In order to investigate the effect of sodium combustion, Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) have exchanged information of sodium combustion modelling and related experimental data in the framework of Civil Nuclear Energy Research and Development Working Group (CNWG). The benchmark analysis of the SNL T3 sodium spray combustion experiment and sensitivity study have been carried out using the AQUA-SF code in this paper. The sensitivity analysis clarifies the influencing factors of the multi-dimensional analysis such as turbulence models, radiation heat transfer model from sodium droplets, and momentum exchange between gas and droplets. The result shows that the turbulence effect, radiation from droplets and gas temperature increase at spray burning area affect sodium spray burning rate significantly.

SNL/JAEA collaboration on sodium fire benchmarking

Clark, A. J.*; Denman, M. R.*; Takata, Takashi; Ohshima, Hiroyuki

SAND2017-12409, 39 Pages, 2017/11

Two sodium spray fire experiments performed by Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) were used for a code-to-code comparison between CONTAIN-LMR and SPHINCS. Both computer codes are used for modeling sodium accidents in sodium fast reactors. The comparison between the two codes provides insights into the ability of both codes to model sodium spray fires. The SNL T3 and T4 experiments are 20 kg sodium spray fires with sodium spray temperatures of 200$$^{circ}$$C and 500$$^{circ}$$C, respectively. The vessel in the SNL T4 experiment experienced a rapid pressurization that caused of the instrumentation ports to fail during the sodium spray. Despite these unforeseen difficulties, both codes were shown in good agreement with the experiments. SPHINCS showed better long-term agreement with the SNL T3 experiment than CONTAIN-LMR. The unexpected port failure during the SNL T4 experiment presented modelling challenges.

The available experimental information on $$^{34}$$P has been greatly increased through the analysis of $$gamma$$ decays in coincidence with protons from the interaction of an $$^{18}$$O beam at 24 MeV with an $$^{18}$$O target. Light charged particles from the reaction were detected with Microball, and multiple $$gamma$$ ray coincidences with Gammasphere. Many newly observed $$gamma$$ transitions have been identified and placed in the level scheme. Additionally, for most states, spins have been assigned based on measured $$gamma$$ ray angular distributions while parities were inferred from lifetimes determined through Doppler-broadened line-shape analysis. Most of the states observed have been interpreted in terms of shell-model calculations using the WBP-a and SDPF-NR interactions having one particle in the 0$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ or 1$$p$$$$_{3/2}$$ orbital. The two calculations agree almost equally well with the data resulting in root-mean-square differences of about 200 keV. However, two of a few high-lying states may be associated with stretched $$pi$$$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ $$otimes$$ $$nu$$$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ states, but the calculations over-predict their energies by 2-3 MeV. Furthermore, a newly observed long-lived 7919-keV state is established for which no explanation is available at present.

no journal, , 

As a collaboration on the field of advanced reactor modeling and simulation in Civil Nuclear Energy Research and Development Working Group (CNWG) between Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), information exchange of sodium combustion modeling and experimental data has been carried out. In the collaborative work, a benchmark analysis of Surtsey spray combustion experiments done by SNL has been conducted using SPHINCS code at JAEA and CONTAIN-LMR code at SNL. In this paper, the numerical result of SPHINCS code and the comparison between SPHINCS and CONTAIN-LMR codes are discussed. Furthermore, sensitivity analyses have also been carried out to investigate the influential factor on the experiments.
