Fifth Joint IAEA-GIF Technical Meeting on Safety of Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactor

23 – 24 Jun 2015
Vienna, Austria
Event code: 622-I3-TM-50169

One of the key areas in both the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) and the IAEA programmes on innovative nuclear systems is the harmonization of safety approach, safety requirements, safety design criteria (SDC) and safety design guidelines (SDG) for the GEN-IV Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors (SDC-SFR). This topic has gained an increased importance in the aftermath of the accident that occurred in 2011 at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.

In this framework, a series of joint IAEA-GIF Workshops on Safety of Sodium-cooled Fast Reactors (SFR) has been held since 2010. Continuing these efforts, the fifth joint IAEA-GIF Technical Meeting/Workshop on "Safety of Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactors" is held on 23-24 June 2015 at the IAEA. 

The main purpose of the Technical Meeting/Workshop is to present and discuss:

  • Updated SFR SDC/SDG and Related Activities;
  • Implementation of SDC by Designers of Innovative SFRs Concepts; and
  • Safety Design Guidelines on Specific Structures, Systems and Components.

Presentations

Opening Session

Session 1: Updated SFR SDC/SDG and Related Activities

Session 2: Implementation of SDC by Designers of Innovative SFRs Concepts (1)- Reactor core and fuel design featuring fuel material characteristics, i.e. oxide, metal, nitride, etc.

Session 3: Safety Design Guidelines on Specific Structures, Systems and Components

Session 4: Implementation of SDC by Designers of Innovative SFRs Concepts (2) - Coolant system and containment design featuring SFR characteristics

All presentations are also available in the IAEA INIS Database
