• 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....

SESAME TEXTBOOK IS OUT!

A major outcome of the project has been achieved. Our textbook on Thermal Hydraulics Aspects of Liquid Metal Cooled Nuclear Reactors is available now at
Elsevier Woodhead Publishing. The textbook contains a comprehensive collection of liquid metal thermal hydraulics research and development for nuclear liquid metal reactor applications. Our European experts discuss topics of note that are supplemented by an international contribution from US partners within the framework of the NEAMS program. This book is a convenient source for students, professionals and academics interested in liquid metal thermal hydraulics in nuclear applications. In addition, it will also help newcomers become familiar with current techniques and knowledge. Interested in purchasing your own copy?
