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.

ln the liquid metal fast reactor (LMFR) using liquid sodium as a coolant, it is important to evaluate the effect of the sodium combustion on the structure, etc. Most of the previous analytical works are based on a zone model, in which the principal variables are treated as volume-average quantities. Therefore spatial distribution of gas and structure temperatures, chemical species concentration are neglected. Therefore, a multi-dimensional sodium combustion analysis code AQUA-SF (Advanced simulation using Quadratic Upstream differencing Algorithm - Sodium Fire version) has been developed for the purpose of analyzing the sodium combustion phenomenon considering the multi-dimensional effect. This code is based on a multi-dimensional thermal hydraulics code AQUA that employs SIMPLEST-ANL method. Sodium combustion models are coupled with AQUA; one is a liquid droplet model for spray combustion, and the other is a flame sheet model for pool combustion. A gas radiation model is added for radiation heat transfer. Some other models necessary for the sodium combustion analysis, such as a chemical species transfer, a compressibility, are also added. ln AQUA-SF code, bounded QUICK method in space scheme and bounded three-point implicit method in time scheme are implemented. Verification analyses of sodium combustion tests shown in the following have been carried out. (1)pool combustion test (RUN-D1) (2)spray combustion test (RUN-E1) (3)sodium leakage combustion test (Sodium Fire Test-II) (4)smaII-scale leakage combustion test (RUN,F7-1) ln each verification analysis, good agreements are obtained and the validity of AQUA-SF code is confirmed.
