  "abstract": "<p>An overview of the ongoing efforts in the area of the thermal hydraulics modeling of a</p>\n\n<p>Molten Salt Fast Reactor (MSFR) is presented. The MSFR employs a owing liquid fuel based on</p>\n\n<p>a high temperature lithium uoride salt. A molten salt ow can be considered in many situations</p>\n\n<p>as an incompressible ow. However, several phenomena intrinsic to a molten salt ow pose unique</p>\n\n<p>challenges (radiative heat transfer, volumetric heat source, strong neutronics feedbacks, etc.). To</p>\n\n<p>study some of these phenomena and to improve current Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models</p>\n\n<p>an experimental facility called SWATH (Salt at WAll: Thermal ExcHanges) will be built as part of the</p>\n\n<p>European project SAMOFAR (2015-2019).</p>",
