The PASCAL project is devoted at significantly contribute to the advancement of the safety research on innovative heavy liquid metal cooled reactors, with the ambition to generate evidence that is ready-for-use in the discussions between the ALFRED and MYRRHA designers and the respective safety authorities in the pre-licensing phase.
The goals of PASCAL also set an ambition of relevance and quality to the results, which is reflected in structuring and organizing the proposal. Relevant experiments in representative conditions are planned, and - wherever applicable - accompaigned by simulations with the objective of extending their domain of validation and reducing uncertainties.
The selected activities all address the main reference: supporting the justification of resilience to severe accident conditions, aiming to demonstrate the claim that no off-site emergency measures are needed for an HLM-cooled system.
Finally, the project will strengthen the longstanding collaborations among European organizations, and will strongly support the education and training of a new generation of experts, to secure safety culture is preserved.
