The application of CATHARE1 V1.3 to LOBI small break LOCA experiments and a comparison with RELAP5/MOD2
The paper presents an overview of the application of CATHARE V1.3 to LOBI Small Break LOCA tests, performed at "Dipartimento di Costruzioni Meccaniche e Nucleari" of Pisa University. In particular, the development of a new nodalisation of the LOBI facility is discussed, along with the analysis of tests A2-81 (1% CL break). A1-83 (10% CL break) and A1-84 (10% HL break). In the second part of the paper, uncertainties are outlined which are typical of the analysis of experiments in integral test facilities. Finally, on the basis of the application of RELAP5/MOD2 to the analysis of test A2-81, a judgement is given about the behaviour of the two codes, emphasising the related advantages and disadvantages.
