    Abstract

    The current need to ensure an effective and prompt transition of the energy sector towards zero-carbon has renewed the interest for nuclear technology. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) seem particularly interesting for their reduced capital cost, operational flexibility and enhanced safety and security. Different SMR concepts are being developed around the world and the liquid metal-cooled technology is one of the most convincing design options. Liquid Metal Fast Reactor (LMFR) technology was identified as one of the possible Generation IV reactor options too....
