Reactivity assessment during fuel draining for ThorCon MSR - Milano Multiphysics

Reactivity assessment during fuel draining for ThorCon MSR

Reactivity assessment during fuel draining for ThorCon MSR

Reactivity assessment during fuel draining for ThorCon MSR 1804 812 Milano Multiphysics

In the ThorCon Molten Salt Reactor design, liquid fuel can be drained out from the core and stored in a draining tank placed below. In this context, Milano Multiphysics has studied the reactivity evolution of the fuel salt during its draining.

A coupled neutronic-CFD  model is implement to fully describe the reactivity as a function of the of the free surface height of fuel salt.
The video below depicts the main results of the project.
