Abstract
International audience; An overview of the ongoing eorts in the area of the thermal hydraulics modeling of aMolten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR) is presented. The MSFR employs a owing liquid fuel based ona high temperature lithium uoride salt. A molten salt ow can be considered in many situationsas an incompressible ow. However, several phenomena intrinsic to a molten salt ow pose uniquechallenges (radiative heat transfer, volumetric heat source, strong neutronics feedbacks, etc.). Tostudy some of these phenomena and to improve current Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelsan experimental facility called SWATH (Salt at WAll: Thermal ExcHanges) will be built as par...
