Abstract: AbstractAnalysis of the dynamic behaviour of ADTF has been carried out in the framework of a bilateral collaboration between the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). For this purpose, SAS4A the safety analysis code was applied to five systems with different types of fuel and coolant.In sodium-cooled systems, transient behaviour in the unprotected loss-of-flow scenario shows the least favourable safety performance. As long as the external source is present, loss of coolant flow wi…
