Abstract

An available classification of sodium fires inside the compartments of Nuclear Power Plants with sodium-cooled fast reactors is described briefly. The main features of the known physico-mathematical models of sodium burning are considered. A system of equations for estimating the temperatures of air and steel siding of compartment inner surfaces at sodium fire in the separated NPP compartment is proposed. The presented system of equations contains minimum of phenomenological parameters.
