AbstractIn Sodium Cooled Fast Neutron Reactors natural convection flow and thermal stratification in the upper plenum may occur under emergency shutdown conditions. Thermal stratification phenomena have been examined experimentally in the PLANDTL facility of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. This paper presents the results of numerical simulations of selected steady-state and transient experiments in the PLANDTL facility, using TrioCFD/MC2 code developed at CEA. CFD approach for the flow in large volumes and a sub-channel approach for the flow in the core region are used. Calculated results have been validated against experimental values. Validation of the upper plenum modelling has been also made based on CEA Sodium mixed convection experiments.
