Abstract

The French-Russian scientific and technical cooperation in the field of thermal physics of fast reactors with the sodium cooling is carried out for the purpose of raise of level of a scientific and technical substantiation of characteristics and design solutions, raise of efficiency and safety of their work. Main line of this cooperation is thermohydraulics of reactor core and various units of the equipment, the sodium technology, development of accidents, decommissioning of fast reactors. The results obtained during bilateral French-Russian cooperation on fast reactor thermal physics under the Agreement from June, 8th, 2010 between State corporation "Rosatom" and the Commissariat on an atomic energy and alternative energy sources (CEA) of France about peace use of an atomic energy in the framework of Working group 3 "Technology" (WG-3) are presented and discussed. Main line and problems for the further of bilateral cooperation are formulated.

Keywords
