• The thermal-hydraulics Simulations and Experiments for the Safety Assessment of MEtal cooled reactors (SESAME) project supports the development of European liquid metal-cooled reactors. It will provide new experimental results and improved numerical approaches, allowing system designers to improve the safety of equipment, which will lead to enhanced safety standards and culture.

THE SESAME PROJECT

ABOUT
SESAME-PARTNERSThe European Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP) and the European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative (ESNII) give an important role to the future application of fast reactors for the production of sustainable nuclear energy....

FEATURED: THINS

The FP7 THINS project focused on crosscutting issues of thermal-hydraulics encountered in innovative nuclear systems. It gathered 24 institutions (23 from European Union) and pooled together the infrastructure available in Europe. The overall objectives of the THINS project are the development...
