This research studied a scaling analysis for the selection of proper heat generation at tube for 1/4-scale storage vaults. First of all, the temperature field and velocity distribution of an original scale storage vault were analyzed and then numerical analysis of a 1/4-scale storage vault was performed to compare each model. The proper heat generation for a 1/4-scale storage vault, at which the temperature and velocity field of a 1/4-scale storage vault showed the best agreement with that of the original storage vault, was evaluated with proposed dimensionless parameters. The behavior of temperature and velocity of fluid in the 1/4-scale case were most similar to those of the original scale, using a heat flux 1.3 times higher than that seen in the original scale, which was approximately 190 W.
