The experience in heavy liquid metal (HLM) thermal fluid dynamics with regard to both the theoretical or numerical and experimental fields is limited, and somewhat dispersed. Examples are turbulent exchange phenomena, free-surface problems and two-phase flows. This publication performs an assessment of the shortcomings of the present computational fluid dynamics codes used for HLM simulation and identifies future research activities, in both the numerical and experimental areas, to address these shortcomings.
