Project description

The thermal-hydraulics simulations and experiments for the safety assessment of metal colled reactor (SESAME) project supports the development of European liquid metal cooled reactors (ASTRID, ALFRED, MYRRHA, SEALER). The project focusses on pre-normative, fundamental, safety-related challenges  for these reactors.

The SESAME project will improve the safety of liquid metal fast reactors by making available new safety related experimental results and improved numerical approaches
