Abstract: The Generation IV International Forum (GIF) Proliferation Resistance and Physical Protection (PR&PP) Working Group has developed a methodology for the PR&PP evaluation of advanced nuclear energy systems (NES). A notional sodium cooled fast neutron nuclear reactor system, named the Example Sodium Fast Reactor (ESFR), was used as a case study for the development and demonstration of the GIF-PR&PP Evaluation Methodology. This paper presents the results of the application of the GIF-PR&PP Evaluation Methodology to a misuse scenario involving the Example Sodium Fast Reactor (ESFR). The ESFR baseline design and two design variations are addressed. Rather than presenting a complete evaluation of all the possible misuse scenarios the paper concentrates on methodological aspects and illustrates how a qualitative analysis, following the GIF PR&PP evaluation methodology, can generate traceable results of the considered design variations and provide useful feedback for both System & Safeguards designers.
