Under the informal umbrella of the Molten Salt Thermal Properties Working Group (MSTPWG), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), UC Berkeley, and the University of South Carolina plan to organize a Round Robin on Chemical and Thermal Property Characterization of Molten Salts.
The goal is to have the properties of a set of two salt compositions (FLiNaK and ~50% NaCl-KCl) measured by different groups using their standard techniques. The same property results will be inter-compared to understand the ability to reproduce measurements, appropriateness of techniques, and possible sources of error. This valuable exercise we hope will lead to: (1) Development of standard procedures, (2) generation of calibration standards, (3) verified properties (for the samples being measured), and (4) sharing of best practices in the performance of these measurements.
Molten Salt Round Robin 1.0 will run Aug 2020-Jul 2021. To participate, or to discuss options for participating, please submit this form.
