Abstract

Within the framework of the European JASMIN1 project, the ASTEC-Na code is being developed for safety analysis of severe accidents in SFR2. In the first phase of validation of the ASTEC-Na fuel thermo-mechanical models three in-pile tests conducted in the CABRI experimental reactor have been selected to be analysed. We present here the preliminary results of the simulation of two Transient Over Power tests and one power ramp test (AGS0, LT2 and E9, respectively) where no pin failure occurred during the transient. We present the comparison of ASTEC-Na results against experimental data and other safety code results for the initial steady state conditions prior to the transient onset as well as for the fuel pin behaviour during the transients.
