Assessment of the SE2-ANL code using EBR-II temperature measurements

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The SE2-ANL code is a modified version of the SUPERENERGY-2 code [1]. This code is used at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) to compute the core-wide temperature profiles in Liquid Metal Reactor (LMR) cores. The accuracy of this code has recently been tested by comparing the predicted temperatures with measured values in the Experimental Breeder Reactor R (EBR-II). The detailed temperature distributions in two experimental subassemblies and the mixed mean subassembly outlet temperatures were used in this validation study. The SE2-ANL predictions were found to agree well with measured values. It was also found that SE2-ANL yields results with accuracy comparable ... continued below

The SE2-ANL predictions were found to agree well with measured values. It was also found that SE2-ANL yields results with accuracy comparable to the more detailed COBRA-WC [2] calculations at much lower computational cost.
