Abstract

The propagation of local cooling disturbances in individual fuel assemblies was investigated in the MOL-7C experimental programme, which was conducted in the in-pile sodium loop (IPSL) at the BR2 Material Testing Reactor under neutronic test conditions that were as close as possible to typical Liquid Metal Reactor fuel assembly operating conditions.
