Recent frapcon fraptran use at vtt
Recent FRAPCON & FRAPTRAN use at VTT

  • Statistical studies

    • OECD/NEA benchmark on uncertainty analysis of best estimate modelling of light water reactors

  • Support to STUK

    • EPR LBLOCA

  • Halden LOCA experiment simulations

  • FRAPTRAN-GENFLO bundle simulations


Statistical studies
Statistical studies

  • FRAPCON used for a statisticalstudy on input interactions

  • Sobol’ variancedecompositionused in analysis

    • Providesinformation on higherorderinteractions

    • Downside: ~106 FRAPCON runs

    • Traditionalfirst-order ranking methodscommonlyused in sensitivityanalysisnotalwayssufficientdue to complexinteractions

  • Discussed in OECD/NEA UAM workshops and Halden uncertainty workshop thisfall

  • ”The importance of input interactions in the uncertainty and sensitivityanalysis of the nuclearfuelbehavior”, T. Ikonen and V. Tulkki, submitted to Nuclear Engineering and Design

  • Workcontinues with FRAPTRAN analysis


Lbloca
LBLOCA

  • Comparativeanalysis for STUK on number of failedrodsduring EPR LBLOCA

    • Regulatoryrequirement <10%

    • For reference / information to STUK, notpart of officialprocess

  • System code APROS used for 59 globalsimulations of plantstate

  • 59x1000 FRAPTRAN/GENFLO subchannelanalysisused with localvariations

    • Resultsextended to wholecore with neuralnetworks

    • -> fraction of failedrods

  • Work in progress


  • Study on impact of variation of heatingpower for future Halden LOCA test

    • Also, simulation of the effect of spacergridsimulation

    • Shouldbeimplementable in the FEA model

  • Extension of FRAPTRAN/GENFLO hotchannelmode to bundlemodel with severalconcurrent FRAPTRAN simulations

  • Coupling of FRAPCON to Serpent 2 MC reactorphysicscode via universalmultiphysicsinterface

  • Use of FRAPTRAN for benchmarkingour FINIX fuelmodule

    • FINIX initializationfrom FRAPCON restart

  • FRAPTRAN to beused in IAEA CRP FUMAC and possibly OECD RIA phase II benchmark
