ADSS (Accelerator Driven Sub-critical System) nuclear reactors have evoked renewed interest in research because it operates in sub-critical conditions and transmutes nuclear wastes. Numerical investigation of fluid flow and heat transfer characteristics of an ADSS has been accomplished using a finite element method based on Streamline Upwind Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) technique. The time-dependent governing equations for conservation of mass, momentum and energy are solved. The simulations have been carried out to predict the heat transfer in the spallation regime. The cases of beam window with heat flux prescription is analyzed in the absence and presence of heat generation in the liquid metal. At the first place, laminar regime of the flow is considered for the ADSS geometry. The Reynolds number of interest were varied over a specified range.
