The in-box LOCA (Loss of Coolant Accident) is a relevant safety issue for the design of the WCLL BB.

Abstract

The in-box LOCA (Loss of Coolant Accident) is a relevant safety issue for the design of the WCLL BB. Research activities are ongoing to master phenomena and processes occurring during the postulated accident, to enhance the predictive capability and reliability of numerical tools, and to validate computer models, codes and procedures for their applications. Current status of knowledge requires the availability of qualified and reliable experimental data to support these activities. In view of this, the new separate effect test facility LIFUS5/Mod3 has been commissioned and the Series D experimental campaign is in progress. The tests are focused on the generation of reliable experimental data for the validation of the modified version SIMMER codes for fusion application. Moreover, data will be also used to investigate the dynamic effects of energy release on the structures and to provide relevant feedbacks for the follow up experimental campaigns. The experimental data and results of Test D1.1 are reported and critically discussed, focusing on pressures, temperatures, amount of injected water, and hydrogen production quantification.
