1 Nuclear Safety Research Unit FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN users group meting Manchester (UK), CIEMAT ACTIVITIES on FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN APPLICATIONS ( )

2 Nuclear Safety Research Unit FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN users group meting Manchester (UK), PROJECTS TERMOMEC (Thermo-mechanical Behaviour of Nuclear Fuel at High Burnup) AICAST (Analysis of Integrity of Spent Fuel in Dry Storage and Transport)  Sponsor: CSN (Spanish Nuclear Regulatory Body)  Codes used: FRAPCON-3.4 and FRAPTRAN-1.4  Sponsor: ENRESA (Spanish Radioactive Waste Management Company)  Code used: FRAPCON-3.4

3 Nuclear Safety Research Unit FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN users group meting Manchester (UK), FRAPCON FRAPTRAN-1.4 RampsRIA OECD RIA-Benchmark (CABRI, NSRR) TERMOMEC MAIN ACTIVITIES 3 rd SCIP Benchmark (R2, HALDEN) Uncertainties analysis CIP0-1 (deterministic) LOCA HALDEN Other cases (probabilistic)

4 Nuclear Safety Research Unit FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN users group meting Manchester (UK), AICAST MAIN ACTIVITIES FRAPCON-3.4xt CreepHydrogen Dry storage DHC Hydride radial reorientation (HRR) Embrittlement (HE) StageIIIIII MechanismCreepDHC + HEHRR

5 Nuclear Safety Research Unit FRAPCON/FRAPTRAN users group meting Manchester (UK), SPECIFIC QUESTIONS Gap from plotter file different from (r clad in - r fuel out ) (values from“print2.f”) Clad thickness: FRAPCON-3.4 FRAPTRAN-1.4 (RIA simulations) If clad failure →  ztot ≠  ztherm +  zelast +  zperm T clad out with oxide ≈ T clad out without oxide (completely spalled)  tcc in “frpcon.f” axially changes (clad thinning due to oxide)  tcc in “print2.f” does NOT change from node to node (top value) → same r clad out  Transmitted to “ccreep.f” → stress not affected by axial variation
