The objective of the Lecture Series is to provide a state-of-the art review of the current knowledge and future challenges in Fluid Mechanics, Chemistry and Safety for Heavy Liquid Metal Nuclear Reactors. The Lecture Series provides general lessons on these three different topics as well as more specialized lectures related to current research activities in the field of HLM reactors. The Course starts with the presentation of a future HLM reactor, the Myrrha reactor and is then followed by a description of the challenges in Chemistry from a theoretical and experimental viewpoint. The next part of the course is devoted to Thermal-hydraulics challenges of HLM reactors both from modeling, numerical (CFD), and experimental point of view. Finally, the course reviews the different challenges in safety and provides more insights in some typical safety related problems. The Lecture Series is intended to provide enough introductory material to welcome novices in the field but also advanced information for expert researchers.

This Lecture Series is organized in the framework of the SEARCH and MAXSIMA Collaborative Project from the European Union Seventh Framework (FP7) program. Most of the lecturers are scientists actively involved in one of these research projects. Part of the research leading to these proceedings has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme in the framework of the project SEARCH (Safe ExploitAtion Related Chemistry for HLM reactors) - Grant agreement n° 2958736
