Abstract: This paper compares the Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor (LFR) and the Sodium-Cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) regarding different aspects of the coolant, safety and economics. A brief review of design and safety experience of an SFR (BN-600) and some safety philosophy of the most developed LFR (BREST) are presented as well. This paper presents results concerning the coolant temperature evolution during three accident scenarios, i.e. Loss-Of-Flow, Loss-Of-Heat-Sink, and Total-Loss-Of-Power. It also studies possible moderators, like BeO and hydrides.
