Title: Applications of SHARP Toolkit to SFR Challenging Problems: Evaluation of Hot Channel Factors and Demonstration of Zooming Capability

Abstract

The Simulation-based High-efficiency Advanced Reactor Prototyping (SHARP) toolkit is under development by the Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) Campaign of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy. Beginning in FY17, the NEAMS Campaign initiated the “Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) Challenge Problems” task to apply its advanced modeling and simulation capabilities to important SFR applications. The scope of work includes two major items: the assessment of hot channel factors (HCFs) and the demonstration of a local refinement “zooming” capability, both using the SHARP toolkit. Resolving these challenge problems with the SHARP toolkit can significantly improve the economic competitiveness of an SFR as well as make the tools more accessible for full core confirmatory calculations.
