In a liquid metal cooled fast breeder nuclear reactor pressurized water vapor can accidentally leak into the sodium in the secondary system, generating heat. Thus, understanding the sodium–water reaction in a heat exchanging steam generator is of paramount importance to ensure the safety of the facility. The potential energy and reaction rate of the reaction are calculated in this work using a combination of DFT, classical molecular dynamics, and macroscopic flow dynamics.
