  1. 1. An investigation of fuel cycles and material flows for a lead-cooled fast reactor using the Monte Carlo code Serpent

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Kristina Moberg; [2012]
    Keywords : LFR; lead-cooled fast reactor; Serpent; Generation IV; ELECTRA; isotope composition; fuel;

    Abstract : The Monte Carlo code Serpent has been used to model the material flows andisotope compositions for a lead cooled fast reactor. The demonstration sized trainingreactor ELECTRA was chosen for the investigation, and different fuel cycle scenarioswere studied. READ MORE

    Abstract : The lead-cooled fast reactor (LFR) is one of the concepts of the Generation IV reactorsystems. There are some issues that have to be solved before a research orcommercial LFR can be built. READ MORE

  3. 3. Application of CFD to Safety and Thermal-Hydraulic Analysis of Lead-Cooled Systems

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Marti Jeltsov; [2011]
    Keywords : Coupled Codes; Verification Validation; CFD; System Thermal-Hydraulics; Lead Cooled sys-;

    Abstract : Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is increasingly being used in nuclear reactor safety analysis as a tool that enables safety related physical phenomena occurring in the reactor coolant system to be described in more detail and accuracy. Validation is a necessary step in improving predictive capability of a computationa code or coupled computational codes. READ MORE
