Activities in progress

Activities in progress

  • ENEA involvement in the RAPHAEL EU project, related to High Temperature Reactors

  • Application of RMPS to assess the HTR Cavity Cooling System, in conjunction with CEA and JRC Petten

  • More elements with respect to the natural convection as in RMPS project

    • Radiation

    • Conduction

  • Assessment ofrelated additional modes of failure

  • Assessment of a set of relevant parameters (e.g. emissivity, conductivity)

  • Transient to be analyzed

    • Depressurized conduction cool down (loss of forced cooling with depressurization)

  • Failure criterion upon maximum allowableconcretetemperature

  • ENEA expression ofinterest for a new Coordinated Research Project
