Comparison of thermal-hydraulic safety codes for PWR systems
This state of the art report is concerned with thermal-hydraulic phenomena on the primary and secondary side of PWRs. The report is divided into two parts. The first part presents, code by code, all relevant information such as structure, physical models and numerical solution schemes. The second part is devoted to a systematic comparison of main features, corresponding to the structure of the code description in Part 1, and also to quantitative comparisons concerning some important specific phenomena such as interfacial friction and mass transfer, and structure to fluid heat transfer. The selected codes are ALMOD (DE), CATHARE (FR), DRUFAN/FLUT (DE), RELAP5/MOD 2 (US), THYDE P2 (JP) AND TRAC PF1/MOD1 (US).
