Several intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) modelling techniques were examined, in order to predict the outlet temperature of primary and secondary sodium at different operating conditions. In the present study, two different approaches namely the Finite Difference Method (FDM) with nodal heat balance and modified nodal heat balance schemes; and Finite Volume Method (FVM) using simple upwind, exponential extrapolation and QUICK schemes have been attempted.
