High-Performance Advanced Methods and Experimental Investigations for the Safety Evaluation of Generic Small Modular Reactors

Project description

Promoting the safety of small nuclear reactors

Small modular reactors (SMRs) have the potential to provide safe and flexible nuclear power generation options. To further this potential, the EU-funded McSAFER project aims to improve safety research for SMRs. It will do so by combining dedicated experimental investigations and numerical simulations. It will carry out experiments on European thermal hydraulic test facilities in order to investigate SMR-specific safety-relevant phenomena. Additionally, the project will use advanced computational tools to conduct neutron-physical, thermal hydraulic and thermo-mechanic analyses of the reactor core of different SMR designs. Various numerical tools will demonstrate the safety features of an SMR core. The project will play a role in promoting the safety of future nuclear power generation systems.
