1 Scope

The general objective for this task is development and utilization of tools required to demonstrate thermal hydraulic performance of fusion systems during postulated off-normal and accident scenarios. A principal activity involves performance of benchmark and verification calculations of the ITER safety approach based on the specified accident conditions (e.g., vacuum vessel pressure suppression system, dust/hydrogen explosions).

Another main objective includes benchmark calculations and experiment evaluations for future cooling systems such as liquid metal flows and supercritical water flows as candidates of future cooling systems.

2 Progress ( 2014 )

China is still very active in this area, although this task is currently on hold.

Liquid metal MHD tests on the DRAGON-IV loop (INEST)  and the LMEL-U loop (SWIP) was conducted, and engineering Design of DRAGON-V Loop is under way

Safety analysis for CN HCCB TBM is on-going at INEST.

3 Future Plane ( 2015 )

On hold.
