Thermal Hydraulics Aspects of Liquid Metal cooled Nuclear Reactors is a comprehensive collection of liquid metal thermal hydraulics research and development for fast nuclear reactor applications. A deliverable of the SESAME H2020 project, this book is written by top European experts who discuss topics of note that are supplemented by an international contribution from U.S. partners within the framework of the NEAMS program under the U.S. DOE. This book is a convenient source for students, professionals and academics interested in liquid metal thermal hydraulics in nuclear applications. In addition, it will also help newcomers become familiar with current techniques and knowledge.

He is an expert in thermal-hydraulics (specifically Computational Fluid Dynamics) for different types of nuclear reactors (Gen II, III and IV) as he has been working in this field since 1997. F. Roelofs has already been strongly involved in the coordination of several EU-funded projects, where he holds (has held) the following positions:
• Vice chair of the project management board and WP coordinator within the EU FP7 THINS project.
• Subproject coordinator within the EU FP7 ARCHER project.
• WP coordinator within the EU FP6 project EUROTRANS in the DEMETRA domain.
He is also the Dutch representative within the IAEA technical working group for fast reactors. He has published about 150 scientific articles, many of which deal with SESAME related subjects. Of particular interest to and serving as basis for the SESAME project are his publications at the NURETH and FR13 conferences in 2013 and 2015 and at the IAEA Meeting on Modelling and Simulation in 2014.
